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!!!

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
