Here's today's card -
I misted with water and sprinkled a little Midnight Blue and Golden Mint Pixie Powder over. I used a Brush to spread the colour over the area, going from side to side. This is a really simple resist technique but with the Pixie Powders, you never know quite what you're going to get. Really cool!
Once dry, I added a little Golden Mint Pixie Powder to a Palette and used a Water Brush to make into a paint. I painted the leaves with this.
Black Card and popped into a Coconut White Card Blank.
I finished my card adding some CS Clear Varnish Lacquer to the 'bubbles' on the flowers.
here. Here's a video by Tim Holtz which explains a bit more about them -
