3rd Day of Christmas: Black Ice & Bleach Out

One of last month's Technique Tuesday class projects was this fun card.  It has a lot of clever features, like the special fold.  This is called a "Z" fold (as you can see by the picture).

Bleach-Sample 

The actual technique we used was Bleach Out.  First you stamp and emboss an image, then use bleach to "paint" out the area you want to be white.

For this project, I wanted the embossing to be black, but also glittery.  So I combined black embossing powder with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to create my own embossing powder, which I'm calling "Black Ice".

Here's a better look at the embossing

Speaking of clubs, I'm forming clubs for next year right now.  There are so many benefits/priviledges of joining a club:  Free Catalogs, member-only classes, stamp camp discounts, special VIP events, etc.  If you want more info - check it out here.  If you're ready to join now - contact me at dostamping@yahoo.com.
