More Precious Than Pearls
Today is the day for another Inspirational Card using Red Rubber Designs wonderful stamps. The theme for for Inspirational #121 is More Precious Than Pearls. We want you to use pearls somewhere on your project, an image, adhesive pearls, liquid pearls or if you are living in a tax bracket way beyond mine real pearls.
For more information on this Inspirational stop by Red Rubber Designs Blog HERE for more information and more wonderful inspiration.
For this card, I used one of my very favorite Red Rubber Design's stamps, Who Am I. I just fell in love with the image and the sentiment. I used a couple of different techniques to create this card, paper piecing, gamsol magic, and popping different bits of the image. I also added quite a bit of shimmer using a Sakura glitter pen on the dress, I think it makes it look like organdy and gives it a translucent quality. I also used the glitter pen, as well as a gold ink pen, on the sentiment and the bee. I used liquid pearls to my image giving her a necklace, bracelet and ring as well as some pretty pink pearls on the crown.
I think you can see where I added the adhesive pearls, I went a little crazy with them, but I just love pearls and couldn't seem to stop myself.
Here's an angled view to see the layers. I almost always use Scotch Foam Tape between layers.
Finally, here is a close up of the main image. You can see more clearly where I added gold pen to the fourish, crown, bee and sentiment.
Don't forget we want to be inspired by you. So link up your creation HERE.
