Night Trees

This is a lovely design, I loved making this one!  Another'worker' design.  The base card is white textured card that is colour tinted with Broken China Distress ink. A corner swirl image is stamped on to the card then mica powders are brushed over the image.   The background panel is dark blue Co-ordinations card that has been embossed with a folder in a machine, then sanded back.  Glitter is added to create the effect of moonlight hitting the trees.  The smaller panel is made using a colour blending technique on to black card.  The black card is covered in PPA glue, then small amounts of mica powders are blended in to the glue with your finger.  Three colours of powder are used.  When dry, the panel is randomly sprayed with spray webbing, in black and silver.  When that is dry the panel is matted and layered on to silver mirror card and black card, as is the tree embossed panel.  The leaves are made from black card.  A solid leaf image is stamped on to the card using clear Versamark ink.  While the ink is still wet the  mica powders are applied with a brush.  When dry the leaves are cut out and covered with a glaze medium.  The glaze is best left to dry overnight, after which they have curled a bit and look like real leaves.  They are added to the card with dimensional glue.  A word or text stamp is also used on the base card and brushed with mica powders.  A very elegant design.
