We are still on winter break from school and oh my ~
I don't even know what day of the week it is!
But I do know that today has two fun blog posts:
this one for the CCEE and one coming up later this afternoon ...
so. so. soooooooo excited! ♥
The CCEE Stampers are back after a break for the holidays
and Liz is our hostess for January!
Her challenge this week: Black Ice!
Liz lives in a place where winters are relatively mild,
but her greatest fear is driving in icy conditions.
“Black Ice” is a very hazardous condition she has heard others mention.
And she discovered in the tutorials on SCS ,a technique called “Black Ice” technique in stamping. So even without much experience at the icy driving or this technique, she is challenging us to give that technique a try.
WOW! Thanks, Liz - what a great way to look at card making
and a terrific challenge!
Here is my take on this super fun technique:
My card is a little off from the traditional way of creating a Black Ice card.
I followed the tutorial on Splitcoaststampers but realized too late
that my embossing powder was silver, not clear!
The order came in and I set is aside ...
Note to self:
Check the envelope the next time your order arrives, please! :)
I did, however, use a silver cardstock base, Stazon, Versamark
and black embossing powder.
The image for today's card is from Stampin UP
called Love is Kindness.
I also added a few crystal clear sequins to give it the 'ice' element, too.
You can see all the Black Ice cards on the CCEE blog today ~
it's a beautiful vision!
Thanks for stopping by!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
