For My post today I added a little silver for some bling. I chose the Ornate Christmas Tree LX7003 that Lynell released at CHA I haven't used this stencil before, so I was excited to get it out and use it for this post. The technique I chose to use was one that I really enjoy using glossy paste and mica powders. The cardstock that I used for the image to be pasted on is called Ice Silver and has a silvery shimmer to it. I taped the stencil on all four sides then using the Paste Spreader (LM2010) and Black Glossy Paste (DGKP) I spread the paste over the stencil. The paste spreader does a great job giving you a nice even image. After I removed the stencil I sprinkled some Moonstone F/X (04) over some areas of the image. Once the paste dries and glossy paste takes some time, at least and hour unless you have a warming tray to use ( I have to set my images away or I'm constantly wanting to touch it). Then take a small piece of a Swiffer Sweeper and brush away the excess Metalllic F/X. If you look at the closeup picture you can see the spots of white on the black glossy paste, this is the fun part of this technique. I can be doing 10 of the same card but each one will be just a little different. I then cut down the image area and layered it on black card stock. I added a strip of silver glitter paper with snowflakes on the side and the used black tulle for the ribbon and last but not least I took one on the corsage pins( TIPI- ivory) that Lynell sells and used the new Sizzling Silver Color Solutions alcohol inks to paint the pearls silver and then added silver micro fine glitter from Glitter Ritz.
