Hi. Today I made some simple cards using the lovely Mica Powders.
Unfortunately it's really hard to capture the shimmer in the photos...but it is there.
I grabbed my Colour Mica Powders in Polar, Watermelon, Wisteria, Cool Mint, Lemon Zing & Peach. Along with that I grabbed a butterfly stamp, my Versa Mark stamp pad, my stipple brush and a white card.
I stamped the butterfly stamp onto the card. You can just see it.
To add colour I dipped my stipple brush into the mica and dabbed it onto the stamped image.
Using a feather brush I brushed off the excess mica. I continued adding colour as I went.
After starting off brushing each colour off after applying I decided to try something different. This time I added all the mica colours then brushed it all off in one go. I liked this way better.
You can see some of the shimmer here.
I then moved on to embossing my chipboard sentiments with Rose Petal & Deep Water Colour Embossing Powder.
I added a spotty border using Lavender Liquid Pearls.
I felt it still needed something so I used Snow White Colour Paste through a stencil.
With that I was done.
Thanks for taking the time to look.
Have a great day
