Heartfelt Hyacinths

Hello Again, and Welcome to another Heartfelt Creations Inspiration Wednesday! 
Today's card uses an image that was just perfect for a technique I had been wanting to try- coloring with mica powder.

These flowers reminded me of springtime hyacinths, so I wanted to color them purple.  To make  the flowers pop, I used mica powder from QKR Stampede on black cardstock and adhered it using Sticky Powder, also from QKR Stampede.  The process is very quick and easy.  Taking a picture of it, on the other hand, is hard!

The Delicate Asters Paper Collection was perfect for this image and the colors I used. The sketch is from Cardabilities~
Complete instructions are at the end of this blog post.  You can find more gorgeous inspiration from the talented Design Team on the Heartfelt Creations blog.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed week!

Lee Ann :)
