Pixie Polish...

Happy Sunday,

A real mix of products and techniques for this weeks Creative Expressions blog inspiration this week.  I used the pixie Powders as well as the metallic gilding polish to make this background which even I admit is bright for me!

I made up a pixie powder background on watercolour card using Sun Yellow and Scarlet Mist.  Julia Watts has shot a you tube video on Pixie Powder techniques which should be on the Creative Expressions you tube channel soon.

I then embossed the piece using the eternal Ivy A4 embossing folder and gently rubbed over the embossed surface using Pearl Lustre metallic gilding polish.

I made up the flowers and the Maggie frames and tags die using bright white and the pixie powder background paper and added frames and yellow seam binding.

A quick post more detail on this technique tomorrow...

Enjoy...

  41. I absolutely love this card and those beautiful colours but I can't help thinking that it doesn't need the ribbon.
    I think it is stunning enough without it.
