Hello everyone, Jennifer here again,
I thought today I would show you a card I made for Sue and Harvey of Imagination Crafts, in May of 2012 using their lovely Rose Stamp from the Summer Decoupage Set, and coloured with their Nature Set of Mica Powders, I think these are my most favourite colours of all the mica powder sets. Ok enough of my chit chat, let's get started on this card.
Make a white base card. Onto this matt some black card slightly smaller than the white. Take a piece of white card approx. a quarter of an inch smaller than the black card and stamp the 'Happy Anniversary' from the set, at the centre top, using black ink. Stamp the swirl stamp, also from the set, around all four edges of the card.
Punch three small holes at the top and insert three brads. Fix this to the base card. Take a further piece of white card and stamp the rose image onto it using a black inkpad. Cut out the design and paint it using the mica powders mixed with a little water and a paintbrush.
Colour in the shaded areas of the design with a grey Promarker pen. Fix this to some black card and trim leaving a small border showing. Fix this to the centre of the base card.
Well that's it finished. Although this is a decoupage stamp set, it still looks good when only one layer is used. Unfortunately the beautiful sheen of the pink mica rose does not show up very well on the photograph.
Take care until next time. I'll be back soon, hope to see you back too lols.
Lots of Hugs,
