Thinking of you

Hi! My card today is inspired by one in the Stretch Your Stamps 2 class. On that card, the artist used water to remove some color from a distress ink colored image. I liked that idea, but changed it a bit and used a mixture of perfect pearls and water. I started this card by white heat embossing the Large Flower Background from Hero Arts. Then I sponged on Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick, and Dried Marigold Distress Inks. 
I used a paint brush to add the perfect pearls and water mixture to the flowers. I used a mix with less perfect pearls to do the stems and leaves. I stamped the greeting from the Vintage Sentiments by MyCreativeTime with picked raspberry ink. I wish I could have gotten a better picture of the sparkle of the perfect pearls. :)

I hope you're having a great weekend.

  5. This card is just beautiful. You did really nice job with removing the colour with water. I tried it out with myself and I a found it quite hard to do. Nice job!
