Noel with Perfect Pearls - Winnie & Walter

I took a short nap yesterday and when I woke up there were THREE cats on the bed!  <3
Hi, Friends......

I'm here with a pretty Christmas card to share with you that I made for the Winnie & Walter December Color Combo Challenge. Love this gorgeous palette that Heather chose for us this month!! The touches of blush and lavender are just exquisite with the blues.

I went super-shimmery by adding Perfect Pearls to an embossed background.  I brayered Tombow Mono glue over the textured piece so just the "hills" were sticky.  I let it dry for a couple minutes and then brushed on the pearly powders. Next I added more powder to give a delicate tint to the "valleys" of the embossing, tapping it gently over a scrap piece of paper to catch the excess.  Lastly, I misted slightly with water for a fixative. I haven't made a background like this for a long time and it was soooooooo much fun!! :)

Supplies used include:
Winnie & Walter - In a Word: Noel Cutaway die
Core'dinations - heavy duty white cardstock
DCWV cardstock scraps
Perfect Pearls Pigment Powder
Tombow Mono Multi Glue
Distress Ink - Faded Jeans
May Arts ribbon
Pretty Pink Posh - Sparkling Clear Mix sequins
Snowflakes leftover from an older Simon Says Stamp December Card Kit
