Mother of Pearl?...
I thought ou might like a closer view of one of the demo cards I made yesterday on my Hochanda shows the Mother or pearl effect background. Now to me this is a new technique but Im sure someone has done something similar!
I stared by making the background using white gloss card and adding either glossy glue and seal or cosmic Shimmer glue mixed with water. Next I added some of the mixer shades of the pixie powders along the side and then dragged them across the card using a wide wash brush. When dry you get this mother of pearl look with different colours splitting from the pixie powders to give a mica induced pearl sheen ( this one really needs to be seen in real life to get the full wow of the finish)
Next I Cut a frame from the pixie powdered background and added it a larger frame cut from white card.
Next I stamped the Juliette circle stamp to die for in detail silver onto the silver pearl card. I cut and the centre out using the matching Gillian die and taped the centre circle in place behind the die cut to make a buckle. I simply threaded the sentiment flag through this and added pearl in the centre.
I added a layer of the silver pearl card embossed with the cross stitch A4 embossing folder and a couple of mats and layers to finish.
I demoed this card on my 5pm show on Hochanda click HERE for the catch up if you want to watch how this was made!
