Poppy Time

Good Morning Crafters

Just to let you all know that our Sue will be on Create and Craft on Friday 25th July.
I will let you know the times of the shows as soon as we know.

Today's tutorial is by Jennifer, we hope you like the effects the mica powder gives this card.

Products used to make the Poppy Card

Gold and Black Satin Card
Mica Powders
Poppy Gilding Stamp Set
Kasbah Stencil

Make a base card from black satin card and onto this matt some gold satin card

Using Masking Tape mask off but leave the outer edges free

Lay stencil onto black card and secure with masking tape, dab Versamark through the stencil design with cut n dry foam around the edges only.

Remove Stencil and bursh on the mica powders

Brush off the excess powder

This is what it will look like after removing excess powder

Cut out a square aperture from the card with the border on it and fix to the base card

Colour another piece of black card with mica powder and stamp poppy image onto it with Versamark, which will lift off the powder and expose the design.

Die cut a square from this card

Die cut the larger frame from mica coloured card too and fix poppy image to it using foam pads.

Matt and layer onto gold and black card.

Here is the finished card. Don't the colours look beautiful together.
