Black Ice Technique. One Wild Ride With The Inspire Create Stamping Challenge! #015

One Wild Ride! Black Ice Technique
Inspire Create Stamping Challenge #015

Black ice technique. One Wild Ride

We have a theme challenge over at the Inspire Create Stamping Challenge this time. Each fortnight we have a new challenge and this time it is Masculine. You can see all the other projects made by the talented members of the Design Team here. You can also play along too. It's great fun and really easy to add a link.

I saw this technique demonstrated by a member of our team and I was fascinated! I then did a little search on You Tube too. I believe the technique was started by Melissa Kerman. Do look her up. She has done some fabulous cards!

I love this technique. It's almost like a metallic distressed look. It works really well with the Champagne, Copper and Gold Foiled card too. It's great fun to play around with. Do have a go.

Definitely see what all the rest of the Design Team came up with for this challenge. It's always great to have a few cards with a more masculine feel to them up your sleeve.
