Cosmic Shimmer Mania!!!
It's amazing what results can be achieved from using a bit of plain white card and a bit of imagination! Inspiration from Sheena Douglas from Creative Expresions has led me to have a play with lots of new and exciting techniques. All the products are from Particraft . We stock a fantastic range of products which can all be used together to create these fantastic results. The photo's do not really show the beauty of them unfortunately.
The backing papers were made by colouring white card with a combination of different coloured Distress inks. Then sprayed with water and blotted. It was then sprayed again with Mica pigments suspended in water. This results in the lovely sparkly finish. I love the gold one. It looks beautiful in real life!!!
The topper was an image from the new Dream stamp plate embossed in gold on a white background which had been sprayed with mica pigments. The edges were torn, distressed with Distress inks, Dabbed with perfect Medium and brushed with some pigments. Fantastic effect! The heart was embossed in gold and edged again with Distress inks. The 2 photo's show how using a different combination of colours result in such different results. This is not my ussual style but I really enjoyed it and was really pleased with the result
Would love to hear what you think.
