Hi all…I watched the video of this technique and thought it SOUNDED LIKE A FUN EFFECT..BLACK ICE TECHNIQUE
however, it is very hard to see the effect in the video so go all the way to the end and look at the last few images she shares of previous cards and if you zoom in you should be able to see the droplets effect…. as she points out no two will be exactly the same even if you use the stamp inks and stamps… but it is interesting…
For me it would be one of those things that I would prepare quite a few of them at one time so just do the covers and then worry about making the cards…IN addition I really like the triplicate effect on the front of black cards… I think black is going to show up better than anything else.. I am now going on the prowl for copper and silver foil card stock .. I am not sure this would work on actual copper or on silver as I don’t think it would stick with the embossing and I know that embossing heat on copper changes the color so you want this to be card stock…
I am pretty sure the Michael’s has had some gold cards in box for sale as well as some that are silver… but I will check for the sheets of card stock as well..
I did find sheets of silver and of copper at AMAZON they are the star dream brand and its pretty smooth as you don’t want paper with a textured surface or this technique would not show up well at all..
Again while the photos don’t show up well I am certain that if you had the card in your hand it would show up very well… and I love the idea of it… so who knows when but I do plan to give this a try..
AS ALWAYS THANKS FOR STOPPIN BY….snail headed cyber toad..aka kath
