Make It Monday #113 and Welcome Picture
As promised here is my belated welcome picture for my three newest blog members (see yesterdays post) - I did not just want to greet you with the hamster....
This picture I took may years ago in the Botanical Garden in the Bronx, when Dale Chihuly was exhibited there. He is an american glass artist. I loved the exhibit so much I went there three times. This picture is taken at night - the sun is almost completely down, you can just see a hint of the sunset reflecting in the water. There also was a little drizzle coming down It was just magical...
I have a lot of Perfect Pearls at home - I got them a while ago when a crafting store somewhat close to my home went out of business and you could go there, pay $20 and fill a bag with goodies....I ended up with lots and lots of supplies, some of which have been collecting dust - such as those Perfect Pearls... I was wondering what to do with them, until Nicole Heady from Papertrey posted that video on her blog. Such a cool technique! I had to try that!
It looks quite elegant, so I pulled out my damask desing set from Papertrey, inked it up with Versamark and applied Perfect Pearls with a paint brush in different hues of blue. The card base I used has little specks of gold in it and the whole card shimmers quite beautifully
One caveat so- it depends on the lighting how well you can see the colors.Overall the card is very pretty, I think. Perhaps you'll like it, too!
Of course I am linking it up with Make It Monday
