Mica Swap

Another swap I am in is to use some form of Mica on an Art piece, i.e. create an item using any mica product (tiles/sheets, flakes, or powder). The item could be a card, ATC, bookmark, booklet, canvas, tip-in. etc.

I had a book board which I had painted with acrylics and pearlex, but did not make any effort to use it, so out it came for this project. I added some green mica magic ink on the one side, painted the edges a dark colour to add some dimension. I stamped some word stamps with gold acrylic paint and Brilliance silver ink. I then stamped the quote onto Fibremark paper with gold pigment ink and embossed with gold embossing powder.

I did some die cuts on my cuttlebug out of green cardstock and added gold Mica Magic over them and attached them in the corners. I stamped & embossed the sun image on the Mica Tile. I glued the eye image to the board then attached the Mica Tile with glossy accents and added the little rivets to finish it off.

My inspiration for this piece was the quote stamp which I purchased yesterday.
