more perfect pearls – yummy!!!

man oh man do i LOVE the perfect pearls now!!! i am like a racoon – if it glitters and shimmers i am HOOKED!! here are two cards i did while DH had the baby out shopping all morning (hooray for daddies!!) the first one is for his goddaughter who’s 4th bday party was yesterday. i mixed a tiny bit of water into the pink, pearl and purple perfect pearls powder until it was creamy. then i spritzed some white cardstock with perfect ink refresher and just painted some random lines/splotches. i held the card at a bit of an angle and spritzed it with water from one of the mini misters – just enough to get the paints to begin to run a bit – it was really cool – almost like they floated on top of the cardstock. they sort of ran a bit like a marbled look (but i definitely need to add more paint next time). i let it dry and then cut out balloons with my cricut. i used stardust stickles for the highlights on the balloons and the papers are pink – SU and checkered – my new one from CTMH. i inked all of the ages in perfect plum and used a black glaze pen for the strings. next i cut a bread tag from WIMG cricut cartridge. i stamped just for you (a studio G) in perfect medium (like versamark) and edged the edge with the perfect medium pen – dusted it all with the same pink perfect pearls for fabulous shimmer!

Next is a spring card based on one of the Tim Holtz 12 tags series – i cut a border of flowers with the WIMG cricut cartridge and attached it to white cardstock with removable adhesive. i spritzed it with the same pearl mist using certainly celery reinker, water and pearl perfect pearls powder. let it dry then peeled off the mask – used my adhesive remover from SU to get the last bits of gummy yuck off. then i inked over it a bit with pale pink using the blending tool and foam. i cut a bread tag shape from WIMG and stamped it with one of my new CTMH stamsps – LOVE this set too darling!! i colored it in using prisma pencils and gamsol. inked the tag edges in pink and the checkered paper in certainly celery – tied it on with a sheer pink ribbon – LOVE the shimmer and the softness of it.

and now for my next trick…. 😛 today daddy is taking Pez to visit grandma and grandpa all morning so i am determined to try a stab at alcohol inks. so you’ll either see a post with them or not tomorrow and that will tell you how it went ha ha!!
