So here a step by step on how I make one of those cards.
I used a piece of white card stock, a card blank, distress inks, blending tools, masking tape (I use frog tape for delicate surfaces), mica powder and a brush. Oh and some embellishments.
I put the tape down to make a pattern.
I ink up the card stock with distress ink and a blending tool. I prefer to use more than one colour so it pops a bit more.
In this case I used Cracked pistachio and abandoned coral distress ink.
Because distress ink stays wet a bit longer it is easy to use a mica powder. I decided to use a yellow one to give it a nice golden glow. I use a fluffy brush to dust it on the ink.
To fixate the powder I spray it with a mini mister. Mica powders normally have a binder in it that is activated by water.
While the cardstock is still stuck down I dry the mist with my heat tool. This way it stays nice and flat.
I gently remove the masking tape and reveal the uninked parts of the card stock.
This is what the card looks like after I stuck the piece of card stock on the card blank and embellished it with a sentiment die cut and a stamped and coloured in cupcake.
Here you can see the yellow shimmer of the perfect pearl powder.
I hope you enjoyed the process and will give it a go yourself!
Take care and maybe until next time....
