Tags & 4 x 4's



Been playing with my silkies again, but this time I used them as a background. I splodged a bit of each of the 4 colours onto a craft sheet, took my brayer, loaded it up and rolled. The colours came out too bright and the stripes were too clean, so I spritzed it with water and got a much more muted effect. I'm not sure if you can see or not but because they have mica in them, they sparkle!!!! The background image (stampers anonymous - diamond collage) is clear embossed on all the pieces.



I am entering the one on the right into this weeks My Time To Craft challenge as the theme is pretty pearls. I don't know if black ones are be classed as 'pretty', I can but try!!!

*** Edited ***



It was sunny this morning, and I've done some close ups, so I'm hoping you can now see the mica which gives it the sparkle



You may need to enlarge the photos to see properly



On this one there are two stripes across her dress that are prominent

Ooh, I bet they're SO much nicer IRL if you can see sparkle. How do we train our cameras to catch it??? It makes such a difference. Great tags, Sam.

Yeah, I can see the sparkle AND the colours more clearly now, Sam, lol. Thanks for the close ups.
