Faux Black Ice

Each of my Sunday monthly classes at my house teaches a new technique.The technique last week started out to be the Black Ice Technique.
That technique is to take silver foil
and drag Black Stazon over the
entire piece of cardstock. Then once
you are sure the black Stazon is dry,
stamp the image in Black Stazon
also.  Air or heat dry if needed and
then pat the entire piece of silver
foil paper with versamark.  While
wet apply clear embossing powder
over the entire piece and then heat
until the embossing powder becomes shiney and clear. This is where my FAUX comes in. To give the look of the lines from the Black Stazon without the mess I then ran
the silver embossed paper through the Big Shot using the Subtle Embossing Folder 143706.  The folder gives the foil paper the texture that is very similar to the appearance of the dragged Black Stazon without the mess. You can see the difference of the 2 pieces of silver on the card. The words were only stamped in the Stazon and popped up. The silver trees were then mounted with Tear Tape placed on the new Merry Merlot yardstick and then onto a black card.
The Lovely As A Tree stamp set and the worlds were from Merry Christmas to all #147702 it is also bundled with Thinlits #147912 from the holiday cattty.
