Distressed Pearls - Friend

Where have I been, what have I been up to? Just life and I’ve been creating away but too lazy to upload to my blog - I know - very bad blogger! I hope the Easter Bunny will still leave me a Dark Chocolate Bunny!

On the 13th Innovative Stamp Creations is releasing their April stamps and they are just BEAUTIFUL. I’ll be sharing some different projects of the next week using these stamps.

Distressed Pearls - Friend

This is a new technique from Tim Holtz using Distressed Inks and Perfect Pearls. It’s very simple with a great end effect. Stamp you image using Distressed Inks and quickly apply your Perfect Pearls - mist with water and allow the background it to run until you are happy with it and then dry with your heat gun. It shimmers. I thought these new flowers looked like Tim’s stem flowers from the Nature Grungeboard set so I added one stem with some Distressed Stickles.
