Inspired by Jennifer McGuire

I was blog surfing today and after a trip to Tim Holtz I followed his link to Jennifer McGuire's blog and was inspired to have a go at using pearlized water. Trouble is I don't own Perfect Pearls and I used Pearl-x to mix with water and ended up clogging my mini mister so badly I can't get it to work any more:( Think I used too much Pearl-x. I wondered what I had that would give me the pearlized look and remembered my bottle of Liquitex Pearlescent medium. Good-oh, now to put some Distress ink in a palette and mix in the Pearlescent medium. That worked so I spread it on my craft sheet and pushed the stamp into, then onto the paper. Voila pearlized background. Trouble is it does not show up in the scan..phooey. You will just have to imagine the green image is pearly.

This card is so lovely, Barb! I really like how you used the silhouette corner upside down, too. The colors in this are totally edible!! YUM!
