The lovely Liz Barrell teaches workshops at one of our stockists Cards by Samantha and sent us some pics of the fabulous card she has made using Silkies, Chalkies and Mica Powders. As you can see Liz has used the products through the Flower Frenzy and Cosmic Swirl Templates.

This just shows you how amazing Silkies look the colours work so beautifully together.



Cosmic Swirl is simple but so effective!





We always make a point of saying how beautiful Silkies look when they are brayered and I think this proves the point. The colours blend seemlessly into eachother. If I were you I would be heading off to Samanthas for a workshop!






I don't think this photo does justice to the card because the incredible shimmer of the mica doesn't show on a photo but believe me it is superb. Another way of using Mica Powders - how fab is that!

  1. Liz makes gorgeous cards and is wonderful at teaching the techniques required for making them; these are fine examples of her art... and you are right, a photo can never do the Mica powers justice: it's impossible for a camera to replicate that wonderful iridescence.
