Workshop - Glues and Mica Powders

These workshops started with a general introduction about various glues, tapes, adhesives and their uses.
We then moved onto Mica Powders and I demonstrated some of the many ways in which they can be used.
Our first card uses the Versamark ink pad to randomly stamp the background with Mica Powder brushed on top. The stamp set used is Floral Sketches by Hobby Art. A topper was made by covering a piece of white card with Versamark and then Mica Powder. The image is then stamped with more Versamark thus, 'lifting' the powder away and leaving the image in white.
This is such an effective technique and would look great with a variety of stamps.
For our second card, we stamped on double sided adhesive using Archival Ink and placed acetate over this. Turned the work over and randomly covered the area with Mica Powder of various colours. This was then 'matt and layered' and the card was finished off using a greeting from the stamp set. Hope you are having a good weekend.

  1. Really enjoyed the class and almost finished a card! It is finished now though.
    These are lovely as were all your samples. It's such a delight to watch you at 'play' and come up with these stunning cards. Thank you for sharing Jo
