Just for 'CAS Mix Up Challenge'

Hello and Welcome to today's post for 
one of my favourite challenges
CAS Mix Up and this month's technique is
This is my second card and chose to
try my hand at Black Ice - one I only found
some short time ago so I wanted to have fun 
with it in a different way and see how it ends up.


I did start with gold foil as my base
but you would never know.
The next step was to swipe with
Black Archival Ink and dry.
I then went on to dry emboss, ink again
and then added gold and copper embossing powder
finishing with Ranger Red Cinnabar.
Sealed it with clear embossing powder.
Added a tiny gold frame behind it.
Sentiment is from Happy Little Stampers
inked with Tim's Black Soot and
 the edges with Colorbox Archival Gold.
Attached to coloured card base to finish.
If you are a little confused by my explanation
check out how I got the idea Here
I did go a little overboard but it was fun.

A close up

I hope I have left enough open space.
My MIX is Metal, Heat and Dry Embossing
and Stamping


Thanks for dropping in
Till next time - Cherrio from

What a lovely experiment, Ina! I love all the different colors and the embossed flowers! I'll be it really shines too! Thanks so much for sharing with us again at CAS Mix Up!

This is so pretty Ina! I love the mix of colours of embossing powders with this fun technique. You'll see my "black Ice" card tomorrow on the reminder post. I started with gold as well, but it still looks gold. :) I love the mixed media look of your metal better. I need to let go more and just "go for it"! Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful metal card with us at CAS Mix Up! xx

Stunning mixing of the the colours, powders, inks and dry embossing to produce your unique and fabulous card. I think its wonderful how you started with the Black Ice Technique and then went for it and made it your own. Love the punchy and vibrant pink too. Thanks Ina for playing again at The CAS Mix Up Metal Challenge and I know how much you enjoy mixing the medias, trying new techniques and being so creative x.

This is a wonderful bit of alchemy Ina and it has worked beautifully with the black ink which has outlined the embossing and highlighted it so well, and the embossing powders heated over the top of the flowers look great. x

Incredible Ina. I adore the pinkish appeal to this whole dynamics. You did the Black Ice Technique honours ;)
