Welcome friends! Have you been enjoying all the awesome new projects and techniques that SCACD has been bringing you lately? I've been having soooo much fun playing with all my new toys : D
On today's card, I've used Nature's Tapestry Fan and one of the two corners in the Classic Corners set. You can find the entire collection *Here*
I've kept the card simple so that the dies can SHINE!!! Aren't they beautiful?
VersaMark and *LuminArte' micas to make this one colorful and shimmery fan :D *Tutorial with specific colors below...
mica powders, there are SO MANY colors to choose from, you will surely find something to fit your project easily. I am well on my way to collecting ALL of them lol! You know that I have to have all the colors in everything... I might NEED one I don't have yet!!!
So, here's how I made the magic happen:
I 'stamped' VersaMark on Kraft die cuts - here, obviously the corners...
Here are the colors of mica powder I used. In case you can't see in the photo, they are: Blue Flame, Stargazer and Snap Dragon.
Although you don't have to, since I didn't use Gum Arabic mixed in with the micas (which is a binding agent) I sprayed on a workable fixative by Krylon to keep the mica from smearing. It really does make a difference.
I do hope that you've been inspired and will try this easy technique! I'm off now to see what new colors of mica powder I can add to my collection and to see if any dies are left in stock! These won't last long!!!
Love and blessings ~
