#8 Sale-A-Bration Sunday-The Black Ice Effect Using Your SAB Stamp Sets.

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my Blog & project number 8 of my Sale-A-Bration Sunday series.

I really hope you are enjoying all the projects that i have been bringing you. Its hard to believe that Sale-A-Bration will be over in a couple of weeks!!

Today i have some pretty cards for you that i made using a technique called 'Black Ice'. I have seen a couple of people use this amazing technique & if you have not tried it, you really need to! Its awesome.

I am really pleased with the way my cards turned out & this is really easy to do. I think these would make fab male cards.

To do this technique you will need a Black archival Ink pad, a Versamark Ink pad & some clear embossing powder. You will also need some Silver foil card stock.

The card in the picture above was made with Champagne foil and the Beautiful Peacock card was made with copper foil. So you don't just have to use silver foil. Have a play around and see which version you like best!! 

Please check out my YouTube tutorial for full instructions. You can find the link for it at the end of this post. Please make sure you subscribe to my channel for all new uploads.

I have also listed all the products i used to make these cards at the end of this post. Please remember to use my Hostess code if your order is less than £150. This allows me to send you some lovely Stampin Up! products for FREE.

Thank you for stopping by and i will be back tomorrow with my Remake it Monday tutorial.

Bye for now

Love Ann xx
