Hi there,

Today I'm sharing a card which features the Black Ice Technique, using the gorgeous digi 920 May Showers along with a sentiment from Set 555 April Showers.

I printed out the colored version of the boots and sponged some Memento Summer Sky around the base of the boots.

Next, I pulled the Hybrid ink pad Metro Grey (I thought using black ink would be too dark) down the entire panel and then turned the piece around so that I pulled the ink down again (from the boot end up). It should have faint vertical lines going through the entire piece with more ink at the top and bottom where you start the process.

Now repeat the same process with Versamark and then heat emboss with Clear Detail.

The sentiment from April Showers set 555 was originally stamped directly on the image panel, however I decided to use a die cut tag so stamped the sentiment in Versamark and heat embossed with Black Detail. This was then cut out with the Spellbinders Grommet Tag and before removing the die I sponged on a little Memento blue Summer Sky. 

The tag was attached to the image panel with two yellow brads. This was then attached to a light blue card base to finish.

Below are the products used in today's card. The linked items can be found over on the Sparkle N Sprinkle website. You can also use code ShonaDT10 at the checkout for a further 10% off your entire order.
