I made this card for my aunt.
The background is inspired by Lori who was inspired by Wendy Vecchi. I smeared on the craft sheet Adirondack Watermelon (or maybe it was Cranberry) and Tsukineko Coffee Bean pigment inks, spritzed with water and perfect pearl mixture (mixed previously in a mini mister) and put my card on top of it, not smeared, just kinda "patted", dried it with the heating tool, re-patted it in places I wanted more color, re-dried and then I stamped with Wendy's letter background stamp (like Lori) with Versafine Crimson Red - just bought it 2 weeks ago in France so I had to try it right away. It's lovely and with Versafine you get nice and crisp print. LOVED the result. I stamped on the corners some swirls with Archival INk Coffee. I added two grungepaper roses sprayed with glimmer mists, added some Prima leaves (I need more leaves!!!), some blingy swirls and then I distressed the borders with Distress Ink walnut stain using the blending tool. Then I glued the piece to a card and voilà. Well, at this point I noticed that I wanted some glitter on the roses and added some stickles on them, just smearing it with my fingers. And NOW the card was ready!
Now I'm itching to do more Pigments & Perfect Pearls backgrounds! You can easily use glimmer mists if you don't have perfect pearls but I guess then it would be called pigments & glimmer mists :)) Actually on this card I sprayed some Honey Dew glimmer mist on the pigment inks on the craft sheet other than water and perfect pearls.
