Perfect Pearls and CC2C

Hi Folks,

I'm back with the  results of my 'play day' for the challenge over at Studio L3 which is CC2C  page 54,
 Perfect Pearls Mist.
I started off by playing with the dress form and loved how it turned out, so then tried it on the Tattered Floral daisy.  The  photographs don't do it justice, this is a fabulous technique.

The white panel is the same  embossing folder, inked with Black Soot before running through the CB. The black cardstock  was inked with Versamark and brushed with Perfect Pearls powder.

I am also entering this in:
  Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
  Love to Create - Punches & Dies
  Make It Monday - Anything Goes
  Come and Get It - Adult Birthday Card
  Corrosive Challenges - Birthday cards
  Joanna Sheen - Try Something New (new technique)

I would just like to say 'hello' to my new followers and  thank you for choosing to follow my blog, I really do appreciate it - and you.

Exquisite!! Drew my eye on MIM!

Julia S-W said...

Me again! Hope you don't mind Avril, but I was so inspired by your dress form that I had to have a play! I used canvas on card for mine but I did 'borrow' your idea and put it through an embossing folder. I'm not currently intending to blog it but would you mind if I did at a later date? It was only the one idea I used! Thanks for the inspiration.
