More Fun with Perfect Pearls

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!

A couple of months ago, I zoomed with some friends and we use Perfect Pearls.

I've finally made some cards with my makes and need to share them
before the season passes.

For this card, I mixed gold Perfect Pearls with Pumpkin Pie ink and water and painted on
this leaf die cut.  While it was still wet, I brushed some copper Perfect Pearls
on top.

I've used some of the leftover gold mix smooshed on the background and
did a little random stamping over that with Tea Die ink.

Here's a picture that shows more of the shine.

I used the same technique for this card but used a little print making 
for the background.

Isn't this a wonderful sentiment stamp?

And a close up of the shine.

Such good looking fall cards. Love that your zoom session came up with Perfect to "re-discover" products...and using the copper and gold ones is "perfect". The copper foil and sentiment pulls it all together. Happy Fall, my friend!

Your leaves are gorgeous, Bonnie! I’ve always loved your background washes too. The shine is just beautiful on them. What incredibly gorgeous fall colors.

LOVE the shimmer of your perfect pearls and ink on these beautiful Autumn cards Bonnie! The leaves look so amazing with the softly watercoloured backgrounds. I agree with you about the season sentiment - lovely! xx

Leslie Miller said...

Oh, how I love that one last leaf hanging on the branch. Exquisite! Quite the sheen with those Perfect Pearls. Very different from Twinkling H2Os, which can have a granular look. Beautiful leaves and quote. Love the backgrounds.

Both fall leaves cards are stunning, Bonnie! Love the gorgeous shine and shimmer of Perfect Pearls! Brushing Copper over Gold adds depth, and the Tea Die is a perfect choice for the text stamping. The sentiment for the second card is so true. Love it!
