Good morning everyone.
I hope you are all well and feeling good.
Weather here is dull and damp :-(
I had a play as planned with my Mica powders, pastes and glitters. Some things were successful, some not.
The pink tag is one I love. I coloured with Distress Inks (Spun Sugar, Victorian Velvet and Worn Lipstick) then stamped the Inkyliscious sentiment on using black Archival Ink. I then added sparkle with Mica Powders brushed liberally all over. It's a shame I can't catch the sparkle in a photo.
I used a Papermania butterfly punch, coloured it with DIs and Mica and made the flower and coloured the same way.
I really like it and have given it to Emma as she is starting her exam season for a good luck charm. She loved it.
I also tried paper blocking on another tag, but no Stabilo pencil so looks a bit scrappy. I then mixed some paste with a peachy acrylic paint and roughly scraped over it with some peaks for texture. I then added some Mica and stamped again. The stamping just didn't work at all. Should I stamp first? Probably.
After that, I then used a Crafters Workshop mask and acetate. I applied the supplied adhesive and then glittered the mask. I turned the glittered piece to smooth side out and will attach to an A6 card and the sentiment will be stamped soon.
So all in all I liked 2 out of the 3 things and will play some more. (Ria, will be watching for your step by step of your canvases!)
Thanks for looking and I hope you like them.
