Eureka! Stamps Challenge - Teal or Turquois

Hello blog friends!
It's time for another Eureka! Stamps Challenge.
For all the particulars check out
This week our theme is
"Teal or Turquoise"
I decided to use
"Peacock Feather" (#6301) and
"Happy Anniversary" (#9004)
I stamped the Peacock Feather randomly on a piece of white card stock with VersaMark ink.  I then brushed mica powders over the stamped image.
Mica powders are available through Eureka! Stamps.
When you go to the online store, search "mica powder" and you will find several different color sets to choose from. 
I used the same technique for the sentiment, then added a bit of extra powder and rubbed it on with a make up sponge to color the background.
I find if you just brush it on lightly it will stick to the VersaMark,
but if you give it a good rub, it will stick to the paper.
Once I was happy with the coloring, I sprayed the pieces lightly with hair spray.  Yes, you read that right, hair spray.  It works as a fixative, just be sure to use an aerosol spray, not a pump style.
It only needs a very light spray.

I know this isn't a very good picture,
but I wanted you to see the shimmer of  the mica powders.
 
I hope you've been inspired in some way and will join the challenge.
Now pop on over to the Eureka! Stamps Store and see what set of mica powders you might want.  They really are a lot of fun to use.
 
Thanks for stopping by today. Leave a comment if you will and
come again soon.
 
Until next time, Happy Crafting!
