It's 'Black Magic'

Hello and Welcome to today's post for
This will be my last posting as a Designer here
as new doors have opened for me and 
it's in a different direction.
I will still be card making - just not as many
as I normally do. 
Sorry for the poor quality of this photo.
You know how hard it is with metallic paper.

This card was made quite some time ago
and never got around to blogging it -
so here is my attempt at the
Black Ice Technique.
I had this sticky backed metallic paper
and decided to try it out.
You can find the processHere.
While heat embossing it I noticed
that the edges were curling so 
I continued with it and liked the result.
Adhered it to grey card stock.
My rose stamp is from Penny Black called Temptation.
I bunched up my black ribbon 
adding a Starform Sticker to finish.
Pop over and see what my Team Mates created for our
Look forward to seeing you in our Gallery.
Thanks so much for your lovely encouraging comments.
Also a BIG THANK YOU to Kylie for giving me the 
opportunity to be part of this Team.

Till next time Cherrio from

Gorgeous card using the Black Ice technique Ina. I have not seen it done with coloured metallic paper before (except for the metals). Looks amazing with the bright green. Excited to hear where you are heading. xx

I love that technique, Ina, and I need to do it again. I try them and forget them so I need to find a way to remind myself. I must say it looks fabulous with the green.
