Hello Sunshine


Hi everyone ~ It’s Barb here sharing a card I created using Perfect Pearts to add shimmer to my card. Generally, I prefer a CAS card…the more white space, the better for me. But, I couldn’t resist jazzing up my card with a fall themed flower and some sparkle. Here is my card:


Hello Sunshine

I started by stamping my flower, then inking it with distress inks and water. I spritzed it with Perfect Pearls mixed with water, and set it aside. I stamped the pattern with Hero Arts/Basic Gray Highline Ironwork background stamp in Butter Bar ink, and arranged the layout of my card. I also used my black gel pen to add texture to the center of the flower, and added some white thread to place behind it.

Here is a close-up of the flower:
