Mica Powders



This is my entry for this week's Wednesday Stamper which is an open theme. I thought I'd take the opportunity to experiment, so this is an ATC made using mica powders (I've used a combination of Perfect Pearls and Cosmic Shimmer). I created the background by sprinkling the powders into a thick layer of PVA glue and heat drying to create texture. Then a I took a chipboard flower and coloured it by covering it with Versamark ink and dabbing the mica powders onto it. I set the powders and then covered it with three layers of UTEE and stamped the image into it. I attached it to the background and then added some micro beads in the centre and around it to make it stand out from the background. I hand wrote the word "shine" on gold pearlescent card, layered it onto some sparkly mesh and attached it using brads.
