I recently tried a new to me technique that I first saw over at Karen's Kreative Kards, that she called Metallic tissue background.
I am doing this as recently, when my DH was hospitalised overnight in a city away from home, Carol of CarolG...Creates opened her home to me. We had a wonderful time together, including making a box card (Can't show it yet). I was telling her about this technique, so decided to share this card for her to see.
Please excuse me for not commenting much recently - DH, and his health, is the most important focus of my attention at the moment. I will visit when I can.
I used what I had on hand for my attempt, which was Lindy's (Mica) Powders, rather than Brusho's. As a strong colour is needed I was very generous with the powders on the saturated tissue, and even rubbed them in with my finger in parts. Then left it all overnight to dry. This is the result.
Almost too shiny to continue, (I almost wanted to use it as it was!!) but I turned it over and was thrilled with the strong colours on the back of the dry tissue.
So, as per instructions, I rolled it up into a small ball to crease it, and some of the mica transferred to the back, and this is the result.
I then lightly swiped a Versamark pad across it, sprinkled over silver embossing powder and heated it - here is the result.
I wrapped it around a plain white card to use on the pink base, (another piece I wrapped around deep pink, and it made the pink really glow).
I added the silver butterfly die cut and gave it a pink rhinestone 'body',
And the sentiment on a tag, threaded on a silver lame ribbon
A little bit of doodling with a pink shimmer pen and a strip of washi tape in the centre of the card completed the project.
I am linking this to:
(2 die cuts, two colours of powder, two lines of doodles)
