Choose To Shine Liquid Pearls Card

Hello All! Thanks for stopping by and visiting, especially today on my birthday, and Earth Day! Whoop whoop!!! I have the first of two cards that were in the Ranger booth at Creativation this year, highlighting Liquid Pearls, a fav product of mine that really ups the level and flair of a project. Hope you like it! 
I spread a thin layer of Rose Gold Liquid Pearls onto Mixed Media Cardstock with a palette knife, and let that dry. I embossed it with the Latticework Texture Fade from Tim Holtz and Sizzix. I inked the edges of the girl with Vintage Photo Distress Ink, and then used a detailed waterbrush and Rose Gold Liquid Pearls to wash over her hat, dress, and ballet shoes. I also inked over the Crinkle Ribbon with Vintage Photo and misted water on it, and crinkled it up to dry. I ran Tarnished Brass Distress Paint around the edges of the Quote Chip.
I rubbed the Black Soot Archival Pad over the raised portions of the card that I embossed, and let that dry. I mounted the card onto the Rose Gold Cardstock and then onto a Kraft card base. I filled in portions of the embossed card with Onyx, Pewter, and Gold Pearl Liquid Pearls. Once dried, I adhered the girl on, and affixed the ribbon. I added the Quote Chip last.
 Thanks for all the commenting on my sample cards...I appreciate all of you so very much! Mwah!


I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!
