I think this might be my *last"* posting about CHA .... but wanted to share with you a few more moments. One of the highlights was seeing Judi, from Judikins, demonstrate a few of her favorite products. In the pics below - you'll see her demonstrate the mica gloss inks. I'm a huge fan of her staz-on cleaner, Diamond Glaze and the newer DG3 - she also shared with me a little insight on the creation of DG3 and how it differs from the original diamond glaze. I do have pics to share of my projects with her latest product - Gel du Soleil, a one part resin that is UV reactive.
In the meantime .... here's a product I hadn't seen before and her samples were eye-popping! The mica in them gives INCREDIBLE depth and glimmer to your projects.
She used both glossy white and glossy black papers and dropped on 2-3 different colors of the mica inks. In the next steps, she brayered the color - then went back over with a stamp (not inked) and removed the mica gloss ink by stamping. Or let them dry after brayer-ing and then stamp/emboss over top!
The white splotches on these next ones are the light reflecting on the black glossy cardstock:
The samples were amazing .... here's a few of her finished projects (these are from the Judikins booth) - I haven't yet had the time to play with the ones I bought!
(those are gold micro beads on the one in the right)
Use the mica inks on glossy cardstock like an ink pad - stamp your stamp into them while wet - then stamp onto your blank cardstock for amazing effects!
