I recently needed to make some cards, and as I already had my embossing powders and glitters out, what better way to use them. I made 3 very sparkly cards, here is number 1.
I usually like to work on white linen card blanks, but I think i have used them all and they aren't easy to find at a decent price. however I have a load of cream ones left. I always feel a bit limited with the cream ones, hence the colour schemes, but in the end they turned out lovely.
I started with a Hero Arts background stamp (Antique Flower) and WOW embossing powder in Copper.
The copper is a really lovely colour and has always been a favourite of mine. I prefer it to gold.
Next I cut a strip of card and covered the whole thing with WOW embossing Glitter in Turkish Nights, this is one of the brand new colours.
I made some daisies with paper clay, using this cute mould.
I painted the clay first with black, then I added a little WOW Metalline Blue, then a little WOW Frozen. and finally added Turkish nights to the centre.
Here are all the bits layered up. I added a scrap of lace under the daisy,
I love the sheen of the copper, and the blue daisy just adds a little pop of colour against the neutral tones.
I am having fun with these powders, I think we all went crazy for embossing powders in the day and then put them away in drawers. Get them out and play, we need a bit of sparkle in these dark dreary days.
