More easy Pixies...
Finishing the run of simple cards I thought id share another easy pixie powder card today. I love making the elegant and intricate cards that I do so often but sometimes its nice to make an easy card now and then!
As with Wednesdays card I stared with a piece of watercolour card which I added a mix of pixie powders to and spritzed with water to make them burst.
Next I dried the piece and embossed it with the eternal ivy embossing folder. I then added pearl lustre gilding polish over and buffed off the piece to make it shine. Buffing the golding polish makes the mica lay flat and removes any excess pigment allowing the colours underneath to shine. This picture shows perfectly what I mean as the pearl makes the embossing show above the powders but doesn't cover the colours underneath.
Hopefully you've enjoyed this weeks trips into colour and simplicity
