Stamp Connection #44

Hi Everyone,

Connected through our love for card making, blogging and being from Germany we (Tanja from Little Art Cottage and I) decided to create a monthly project within predefined requirements. We are going to show you the result every 2nd Sunday of the month and this is our ninth transatlantic get-together!

This time we both agreed on the requirements:
Black Ice Technique and Christmas

This technique is amazing - you should look at THIS tutorial. It is quite easy to do. You basically Stamp on mirror paper and then go over it with Versamark and add clear embossing powder.
I used a combination of products - the background snowflakes are by Hero Arts, The die cut snowflakes are by Memory Box and the sentiment if from Inkystamps.

Here is a detail photo:

Since I had made a big mirror paper panel I got a second card out of it:

Did the same, but also dry embossed the blue card stock (Tim Holtz) after I sprayed the embossing folder with Firework spray. It adds a nice shimmer. The die cut sentiment is by CUTplorations.

This technique is perfect for holiday or winter cards. I need to give it a try with different colored mirror paper...

I hope you liked this. Thanks for visiting!
And don't forget to check out  Tanja's artwork!

Happy Black Icing!

Bow, sieht das genial aus und auf dem schwarzen Hintergrund wirkt es am besten!!! Die Technik muss ich mir unbedingt merken und für nächstes Jahr auf die To-Do-Liste packen.
