Waterfront & Southern Serenade ~ Black Ice Technique Cards

Hello and welcome back to my blog and happy Monday! 
I had a really fun day last week crafting with my great friend and awesome team member Jodie!
We had a lot of fun playing with the Black Ice technique. We have seen it become popular recently and really wanted to give it a go.
I will feature it on a Facebook Live video soon but in the mean time if you want to check out how to achieve this look you can check out this lovely demonstrator on YouTube here.

I thought this technique would work perfectly with both the Waterfront and Southern Serenade stamp sets so decided to give it a go. Here's how they turned out...


I decided to make a set of four cards, two with each stamp set.
I decided to make four also to feature each of our lovely foil cardstock colours; copper, gold, silver and champagne. I love how it looks on all the different foil colours but I am particularly in love with the copper! I am a huge copper fan!


Here's a close up of all four completed cards. It's such a fun and artistic way to get more use out of your stamps and the even cooler bit is that you only need black ink, no need for lots of ink colours!


Here's a look at the completed card using the Waterfront stamp set on the gold foil. I love gold, it's such a classic and timeless option! I accented my cards with a mixture of die cuts from the Flourish Thinlets and added a button from the True Gentleman suite and some linen thread.

I also accented with a beautiful Petal Passion metal flower embellishment and a wooden flourish from the Touches of Nature elements. 

Those that know me, know that I love to embellish! My cards are often quite heavy because I like to add everything! Sometimes I have to stop myself!

Next I had a play with the Southern Serenade stamp set on the silver foil. This is my second favourite. I just love how this beautiful flower/leaves look with this black ice technique. I am particularly fond of the font on the sentiments in this set too and it's such a gorgeous sentiment.

I ended up sending these finished cards out as Random Acts of Kindness so they will be blessing the mailboxes of lots of lovely ladies around the world very soon!

I made another Waterfront card on the Champagne foil. I love this..it's a beautiful mix of silver and gold in foil, it's very stunning!

I have backed each black ice panel of a layer of Whisper White and then either Silver or Gold Glimmer paper to add some more blitz and bling!

Lastly we have my favourite, the gorgeous copper!
This is stunning with this technique and I am going to want to make several of these! 
It just really opens up the possibilities with using foil.

I hope you enjoyed this post today and have been inspired to give the Black Ice technique a go, it's a lot of fun and a little bit addictive. 
I really enjoy learning new techniques to add to my repertoire for when I sit at my craft table and it's always fun to learn new things so you can stretch your supplies and stamp sets even further.

Happy crafting. xx
