Make It Monday #228

After seeing some cards by Jennifer McGuire, I bought a set of Metallic Perfect Pearls.  I'm glad I could use them for this week's Make It Monday challenge - Pearlized Blending.  Don't know what that means? Go see the video by Lizzie Jones.  She shows you exactly what to do.  I may have deviated a little but I love the results.

First I blended Distress Inks on two scraps of paper - Ripe Persimmon and Wild Honey on one and Fired Brick, Vintage Photo and a dab of Shabby Shutters on the other.  I cut PTI's  Rustic Wreath from each and then used copper PP on the first and bronze on the second.  Then the magic.  I cut each wreath and intertwined them.  I thought too much color got lost by layering them. Since the wreath wasn't big enough to encircle my MFT die, I cut a couple of extra pieces from the leftover paper and fit it in.  The sentiment is NBUS from PTI stamped in HA Just Rust.  The panel is popped up on foam and a little Hemptique bow tops it off.  Here's a close-up so you can see the shine better.
Thanks for dropping by.  It'a always good to know you've been here so please leave a comment.

  1. LOVELY natural fall colors - and such a perfect way to use the Perfect Pearls - gives that hint of cool crisp air and frost that is so wonderful in the fall.
