Here's today's card - I had a play with mica powders on this one.
For the background, I stamped the Scented Border on the right hand side using Perfect Medium and embossed with my embossing powder/mica powder mix. I then ran it thought the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Happy Birthday Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and then inked around the edges with Shaded Lilac Distress Ink.
Merano Glass perfume bottle mix using Perfect Medium and embossed with my powder. I coloured in some of the gems using a little Shaded Lilac Distress Ink and water. I then added a little Pearlescent Mica Powder, from the Cosmic Shimmer Metallics Mica Spray Set, to the ink and used it to colour some other areas. I cut it out using Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Rectangles and inked through the die with Shaded Lilac.
Purple/Ivory Striped Grosgrain Ribbon. I mixed a little Blue Lilac Mica Powder with some Cosmic True White Detail Embossing Powder (it doesn't need to be detail powder). I pressed a Dazzler Setting into Perfect Medium, added my new powder and heat set. I added a Clear Sparkler.
White Pearls to the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pealrescent PVA in White around the edges.
Do have a go at making your own embossing powders - it's great fun. Also try using it on different coloured card.
Thanks for stopping by.
