Brusho With Mica

Hi everyone.  Yesterday I took my last class of the year for The Craft Barn so I thought I'd share with you a couple of the cards that I designed for this class using stamps by Woodware.

The cards were created by stamping and embossing the imagery before adding Brusho, then whilst the cardstock was still wet (from spritzing the Brusho) Pearl Mica powder was sprinkled over the top which gives a lovely shimmer to the snowy looking cards. For proper snowflakes Chunky White embossing enamel was sprinkled over the top and for some extra sparkle I added a little Crystal glitter glue here and there.

The Brusho colours used were Prussian Blue, Ultramarine and Lemon - I love this combination to give a wintery, snowy sky. The trees and wording were taken from Woodware's Winter Wishes stamp set and the star was taken from the Huge Snow stamp set. The pictures below shows the shimmer that was created from sprinkling the Pearl mica. The light rays from the star was achieved using a Clear Sakura Stardust pen.

For this card I used the same three colours of Brusho for the background and just introduced the Black and Gamboge Brusho for the snowman's nose, hat and mittens. The same Woodware stamps were used on this card along with the introduction of Funny Snowman. Once again you can see the shimmer a bit better on the card below of the mica.
I hope you like them!!
