Paper Trey January Blog Hop Challenge
I made this for the Paper Trey Ink January Blog Hop - Challenge of Black Backgounds.
One of my very first ever card classes used the technique I used here: embossed in clear, and colored with Perfect Pearls. It was great to pull these out again -- and the nice thing about Perfect Pearls is that because they are powder, they don't "go bad". I don't know if the shine and shimmer really shows up in the photo, but IRL they are quite pretty. I added a few dots with a white gel pen (not sure if I really needed that). But once they were there, I couldn't take them off. It is kind of like Darnell's Washi Tape debacle that you can read about.
I used the sketch from The Paper Players , but rotated it; and the colors from Color Throwdown
Paper: PTI (black and lavendar moon)
Stamps: flower - friendship jar; sentiment - A wreath for all seasons
Other: versamark, clear embossing powder, perfect pearls, ribbon, white gel pen
