Purple & Blue Wednesday...
I thought I would make a change and go with a blue card lol ok that's not much of a change for me to be honest lol but this is with purple and pixie powders so its a little different.
Today I am running my regular monthly workshop at Crafty Corner in Breedon Priory . Its going to be a day with the pixies in the Indian ocean lol a bit like today's card.
I stared by making a pixie powder background using m,midnight blue and purple violet mixed which gives this rich colour and the stunning mica shrine. I took a print from the water clout card with a piece of vellum which I used for the flowers.
I cut the detail and outline using the Mauritius die set form the watercolour pixie paper. I backed this with double sided adhesive and added white opaque microbeads over the top to fill the gaps. I cut another of the outlines using white card which I cut in half to make a drop shadow behind. I repeated the process with the other detail die in the set and foam mounted this in the centre.
Next I made a spare of the cape daisies ( I love these so much I have bought a second set!) in the velum, shaped them and added the centres in pair and microbeads in the very middle.
For the foliage I letterpressed the bold scroll dies using perfect medium and then cut them out. This leaves the debossed area with perfect medium allowing me to fill it with detail white embossing powder its a lot easier to show this so I will demo this technique on my Hochanda shows next week.
Finally I frames the card as shown and added matts a layers of amethyst and white and finished.
