Frosty Aqua Pixies...

Happy Sunday,

Today's card is another sample from last weekends shows on hochanda this card was demoed in the configurations shows on the Sunday so take a look on rewind at www.hochanda.com if you would like to see how it was made.

The brilliant thing I love about this card is the mixture of the Diamond Frost against the backdrop of the pixie powdered paper the interference in the diamond frost just makes the paper shine.

The dies used are the Cepheus Gemini die along with Hannah form the frames and tags collection.





















The flowers are simply the requisite poppies cut in pixie powdered velum ( I used Teal Wash, Pewter and Aqua Lagoon) which are scrunched up to look carnation like.  I finished the flower with a sprinkling of the Diamond Frost adhered with cosmic shimmer dries clear glue.


Enjoy...
