Double D Challenges this time around. I don't often use pastels in my work but this was so simple and I love the result. I'm also going to be linking this up to the Challenge over at CAS(e) This Sketch.
I have a nice selection of Brilliance Pearlescent Pigment Inks. Most of them are in the little Dew Drops Style but I have a few in the larger pad size and that is what I used today. I pulled Ink Pads in Pearlescent Coral, Pearlescent Purple and Pearlescent Jade. On a 4.25 x 5.5 panel of White Cardstock and using the SU! Work of Art Stamp Set, I stamped the "swash" 3 times, once in each color. These inks are a fast drying pigment ink but I didn't want to take any chances that it might be wet, so I hit each of them with my heat tool for a few seconds.
After using some powder tool (my version is baby powder and a fluffy brush which feels and smells good), I stamped the saying in Versamark ink and heat embossed it using Simon Says Stamp Antique Gold Embossing Powder. I hit it with some Sheer Sparkle Shimmer Mist and let it dry. The stamp is one I bought recently at Hobby Lobby during a half off sale for around $5.00. I really like this for sending encouragement cards.
Next I die cut the panel with the MFT Blueprints 15 Stitched Rectangle Die and adhered it to a top folding landscape card base made from Stamper's Select White Cardstock and finished it off with some Nuvo Glitter Drops in "Sherbert Shimmer". Yes, I do know that the correct word is Sherbet, but the label says Sherbert. I always really like how nice these pigment inks look on white cardstock. Dye inks can tend to look a bit muddy or grey until they dry but that isn't the case with pigment inks.
Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you'll come back soon and that you'll take some time to scroll through my blog and see my other projects. I blog several times each week so there is often something new to see or read about.
