PinkByDesign Funness!!! ☺

Hiya! Happy Friday!!! Today is my design team day for PinkCricut. For my set of cards I used the same background stamp and different techniques. The stamp I used for all 4 cards is the Daisy background stamp. For all of them I stamped the image with distress embossing ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I used the white cardstock from PaperTreyInk because it's nice and thick and can take a crafty beating! ;) For this orange one, I used my sponge applicator and Distress ink in Spiced Marmalade. And for the centers, I mixed up a little Scattered Straw distress ink with water and perfect pearls in the pearl color. Easy Peasy!

The "Aloha" sentiment is from the Aloha set. And this next card uses that sentiment as well, but a different techinique. For this one I used Broken China distress ink and spritzed on some water in a mini mister to soften the look. The centers are made with water and perfect pearls {have I sold you on perfect pearls yet?} ☺

I also mixed perfect pearls in the pearl color in one mini mister and spritzed at the end for shine...

For this next card, the sentiment comes from an unlikely set proving that Sarah's stamps are most definitely versatile!!! The sentiment is from the set called Tool Time. {I'm doing the Tim Taylor grunt...hehe}

I used distress ink in Shabby Shutters for this one. Also spritzed with perfect pearl mist...

 And for this last card, I made my own "paint". I squished some distress ink in Dusty Concord onto my craft mat {non-stick of course}. I then squirted it with some water in a mini mister and added some perfect pearls to make customized "paint" that is pearly and awesome!!!! ☺ Pictures really don't do it justice, but here goes...

The sentiment is from the Our Mothers set. You can see the shine more here....

I know it looks kinda messy here, but I swear it looks awesome in real life!!! Ok...phew!!!! That's it! Head over to Pink Cricut to see what the rest of the awesome design team made!!!
