Colourful ornaments

Had a superb day on Saturday making cards with my friends Helen, Sandie, Janet, Marisa and Sandie's friend, Jackie.  We missed Lei who was laid up at home with a broken foot.   We got a lots of cards done.  I made 5 on the day


Here is a closer look at my two ornament cards

Blue ornaments


Red Ornaments.


Both use the same technique.  Using PearlEx powder mixed with some water to make a paint.  I die cut a Poppy Stamps die with some silver foil card.   For the first one I used some glue to stick down the die and then some blue PearlEx paint to colour in the ornaments.  I then used a Hero Arts sentiment which I silver embossed.  I used some Peelcraft stickers for the strings.  I sprayed the card with hairspray to set the PearlEx.   My second card used some red PearlEx to make the paint.  I finished it with a sentiment sticker.   I also stuck the silver card to some Jak paper before die cutting it, which made it much easier to stick down.  Wish I had thought of that for the first one!

Thanks for stopping by today.
