Okay let's be honest ... usually trying a new technique somehow turns into a shopping excursion for me, this newbie, who hadn't ever heard of this technique! Well, not this time! I was determined to 'use what I had' and found a little pot of Perfect Pearls in my stash from a SSS monthly kit - add a bit of water, and a pouncing I did go!
For HLS March CAS Challenge:
and a little close-up ... [as if] that makes it
easier to see the shine!
SSS Fresh Daisies die; Shabby Shutters Distress ink.
I've been inspired by Hazel, who chose to reserve her card for later sentiments ... always nice to have a few anything goes cards on hand!
I'm really dying to try a grey and white ... maybe there could be a little shopping for white pearl?
Thanks for stopping in!
You pounced just perfectly Michelem love this pretty card!
Totally beautiful!! I like that you went through your stash and "found" the supplies rather then buy them!!
Beautiful. And it is so nice to have a few note cards where the handwritten note is the star of the show.
This is so pretty Michelle! I LOVE the colours. You did a great job! Thanks for the mention :) Have a lovely evening my friend! Hazel xx

How pretty, I'll have to put this on my to-do list. Such a neat technique.
Terrific use of your on hand supplies, this is so pretty! Somehow for me, those little shopping trips turn into a spending spree LOL!!!
Such a neat card! Beautiful! :)
Michelle, I too had never heard of this awesome technique, Your purple perfect pearls looks fantastic, I wish I had some colored perfect pearls..I bought only silver, gold, and white, and made 2 cards yesterday using white...love your determination, as you ended up with a gorgeous card!
Sigh.... so perfect Michele!
I went out and bought a bottle of pearl paint yesterday, at Meijers of all places. I have Perfect Pearls but didn't know if it would give the same effect. You've proved me wrong. This looks great, Michele. Love the purple and yellow. Guess I won't used that same die for mine. ;)
I think I might have some PP in my stash - my goodness this is just gorgeous, Michele! Thank you for always being so inspiring!!
Wow, beautiful card. I haven't tried that technique either. But I may really have to go shopping. I don't have any faux pearls.
You inspired me to go watch Loll's video...I had never head of the technique. I will give it a try this weekend... Something new would be good for the blood!
Beautiful! See, it looks much more exquisite than one would think! First try is a charmer!!
Alright, this looks so near I've got to check it out. PS Michele, Michele, Michele!!!!! Did you see that we both won from comments on the W&W blog?! I'm about a million times more excited about this win than I have ever been before precisely because I'm sharing it with you! Winning with a friend is the best. :)
Good for you, Michele! Going through your stash really paid off with this fabulous card! I love all the shimmer and the bold color combo is amazing! Great idea to wait on a sentiment, too...I should do that more often :)
Thanks for the link to Loll's video...off I go!
Oh, how beautiful!
What gorgeous results! Reminds me of the inside of an oyster shell. Wait, is that what Mother of Pearl is? Now I'm hunting for my Perfect Pearls!
So here I am ... admiring such deliciousness, Michele ... what a beauty! Gorgeous colour combo, wonderful shimmer ... and that tall delicate bloom ... sooo lovely! So happy you came to play with us at Happy Little Stampers CAS, my friend ... yay for being the first!! Hugs, Anita :)
