Shimmer and Shine!


The theme for this months "Lets Squash it" challenge is "Shimmer and Shine". I found this challenge quite hard as I only really have embossing powders that shimmer and I couldn't find a way of those looking good on my dry embossed card.  Then sorting through my crafty drawers I found a really old tub of gold Perfect Pearls and decided to give this a go.

First I distressed a pice of card with Spiced Marmalade and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide inks, I then ran this through in an old Embossing folder from "Design Objectives", not sure of the name of the folder.  I mixed my Perfect Pearls in a spray bottle with water and spritzed the card with lots of spray and then dried with my heat gun.

Its quite hard to photograph but is really shimmery in real life. Next I added a couple of die cut circles and the layered up die cut Thanks sentiment from Simon Says which I also added the perfect Pearls to.

Now I have rediscovered the Perfect Pearls I shall be using them again, such a lovely effect and would look fabulous on my Christmas cards.

It looks like we are in for some good weather at last so I shall be out in the garden ,Woo Hoo!!
