I felt like a change today so I thought I would get my mica powders out to play today, I love the finish they give especially on black cardstock
I have used the Juliet stamp from Indigoblu
the 60 is made from the stamps that I once bought from a European company and some day I will see them again at a craft show and might be able to tell you where I got them from they are lovely for ladies age cards.
I also used a tiny flourish stamp that crafty individuals included as a free gift when I ordered a paper pad from them.
The central topper is Clarity coated black card stock
Silver and Black mirri card
Perfect pearl and some cosmic shimmers mica powders
I stamped the main image in versamark and then the 60. I used the mica powders randomly but I mixed a bit of pink with white for her face area then just used some lilac/blue shades. I then stamped the swirls around the edge and added more mica powders.
I lightly brushed off the excess powders onto some scrap paper that I had on the desktop where I had mixed the pink and white.
I then cut a piece of black mirri card the right size and stamped with the flourish around the edge. I gathered all the spare mica that was on my scrap paper and used this to cover the flourishes.. waste not want not.
After leaving everything for a little while to make sure the versamark was properly dry I then buffed it all up and matted and layered with silver mirri.
I just wish I was better at taking photos but you get the general idea it is actually much nicer and more vibrant in real life LOL.
I may or may not be here tomorrow as I still have lots of unfinished cards to sort out as I am gradually getting ready for my first craft fair of the year which will be at the beginning of March.
Thanks for stopping by.
