Purple and Mica Powders

Hi Bloggers,

I'm busy making samples for my next shows on Create & Craft but can't show you any just yet. So, I've made this simple card to share with you today (sorry about the picture quality - it's late as I'm writing this).

The large image is from the Creative Expressions Arty Floral set. I stamped it using Jet Black Archival and embossed it with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder.

I then went over the whole area with Perfect Medium and brushed over Violet Frost Mica Powder from the Cosmic Shimmer Mica Spray Set Garden Flora. The mica added a lovely shimmer to the image and changed the embossed Jet Black Archival to silver.

I tore around the edges of the image and inked over them with Eco Green Paris Trunk Ink Pad Lavender Organza.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set again with the Jet Black Archival and embossed with the clear powder. I went round the edges with the Lavender Organza.

I ran a piece of square card through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Floral Embossing Folder. I needed to run it through a second time as the card was a little bigger than the folder.

I inked around the edges with Lavender Organza. I mounted it onto some white card and then some more white card which was inked around the edges with the Lavender Organza so as to add a coloured mat. I added one more mat of white card and a few purple pearls and the card was finished.

Hope you like it.

Thanks for stopping by.
