{ Pearl Ex }

Stamp Sets: Wild Rose, Happy Everything Ink: Cranberry Crisp Paper: True Thyme, Cranberry Crisp, Recollections Accessories: Natural Hemp Twine, Word Window Punch, Pearl-Ex, Aqua-Painter Non-SU!: Future Floor Wax

This is a card that I made for a swap that I was in. I just *love* these colors together and will be oh so sad when they retire. It didn't turn out quite how I had envisioned it, but I still think that it is nice. I really wanted the technique where you fill your Aqua-Painter with Future Floor Wax and then dip it into Pearl-Ex to make it a bit more of a paint. I had yet to do actually use my Pearl-Ex and was envisioning a beautiful shimmery red rose. The first couple that I did ended up with more of a shiny glittery red rose and was actually quite ugly. I then decided to just use the Pearl-Ex to highlight parts of the rose rather than trying to make the whole thing shimmery. I think it balanced out alright, but of course doesn't photograph well enough to really give you a feel for what it looks like. Oh well, I hope that you enjoy!
