Shiny things

Because of all the new scrummy releases over on the paper artsy blog this week we have had an extra week to play with shiny things. I decide to make a large tag which I think I will use as the cover for a tag book. I was inspired by Penny Nuttalls book cover which you can see here.

I spread matt medium all over a no 10 tag and used my brayer as Penny did to spread some paper clay over most of it leaving some of the tag bare..I then stamped into it using the collage stamp from LP030

Next I painted it over with black gesso and dried it with my heat gun.....

 I rubbed a versamark pad all over so that the mica powders would sick and started added colour randomly with five different mica powders

 I spritzed it with some water and let that dry then spritzed it with perfect pearls and left some of it to puddle..

 When it was dry I touched up some of the raised areas with florentine and copper treasure gold..
