Hi there crafty friends! It’s Lisa here with you and I’m happy to share a bright and colorful card today. Today’s card features the beautiful Pigment Powders from Donna Salazar with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Mixed Media. They add a beautiful shimmer to any project.
Prior to cutting and scoring the center “rays”, the paper was colored with a variety of dye inks. Color was lifted off using water. It gives a bleached effect.
Using three colors of the Donna Salazar with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Pigment Powder I mixed a small amount of three colors with water: Pigment Powder Blue, Pigment Powder Gold, and Pigment Powder Pink. Each color was flicked separately onto the card to allow the pigment to “settle”, if you will, then I dabbed off the excess and heat set. I did that with each color. So shimmery!! (See below)
You can even make your own mists using these pigment powders and make your own watercolor paints. Extremely versatile product.
The Sunshine diecut was adhered using the super fabulous 4″ x 6″ Adhesive Sheets. So easy to use these. I love how strong the adhesive is and that they leave no stringy, goopy stuff in between the die-cut.
Everything is held together using the E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser. This is a superb, ultra-strong adhesive. My absolute go-to adhesive. I also used the Thin 3D Foam Squares – Mix White (using the Large Squares) on the back of the rays panel to give it a very slight amount of dimension. The Navy Girlie Grunge Twine tied in a bow finishes it all off.
One more look!
Hope you enjoyed my card today and break out your pigment powders!
