Technique Tuesday - Mica Fragments & Encrusted Jewel Kits

Hi, Everyone,

It's Technique Tuesday!

Today we will be playing with the Mica Fragments and the Encrusted Jewel Kits put together by Stampendous. The Mica Fragments are perfect for adding a splash of colour or metallic’s to our projects. Today we will be creating a card showcasing Red Mica Fragments and the Pink Encrusted Jewel Kits.


Let’s begin.


First, we start off with brown cardstock which is our card base. On the cover and inside we glue pattern paper resembling white barn wood.


Next, we tear 2 pieces of pattern paper and glue it to the front of the card. The berry paper matches the Red Mica Fragments beautifully.


Then we gather Embossing Ink, Shabby White Embossing Enamel, and Red Mica Fragments.


Take the card and pat the edges of the torn patterned paper into the embossing ink.


Then pour Shabby White Embossing Enamel onto the embossing ink and flick off the excess powder. Next, sprinkle the Mica Fragments onto the powder. It is very important to remember to heat set from underneath not over top because we do not want our fragments to blow off our project before the embossing powder has had a chance to melt and glue the fragments to the surface.


To create embellishments for our card, I stamped 3 butterflies into Embossing Ink, poured Shabby White Embossing Enamel over them, then heat set them. This is a great way to create your own colour coordinated embellishments.


I fussy cut the butterflies and attached them to the card with foam pop-dots. Next I squeezed Glossy Accents onto the body of the butterfly and sprinkled Mica Fragments on top.


Glossy Accents dries clear and the Mica Fragments really add brilliance to the butterflies.


This is what the card looks like all put together.

Mica Fragments can be applied with any adhesive or sprinkled into Embossing Enamel. The Encrusted Jewel Kits put together by Stampendous contain a sampling of products in various colour themes (red, pink, purple, blue, teal, green, bronze).   Each Jewel Kit contains 1 jar of colour Fragments, Embossing Enamel, Mica Fragments, Embossing Powder & Embossing Tinsel.

Have fun creating!
