Perfect Pearls – You make me smile

Alrighty! I was feeling in a sparkly mood today! Not sure why since I have had a headache all day. Maybe it’s because at times, I was seeing stars! I decided to break out my perfect pearls today and paint! I took my Hero Arts Snowy House and used a perfect pearls/Tim Holtz distress ink combination and painted the entire house…. The cute little sun and clouds are from Lawn Fawn’s Partly Cloudy. I heat embossed some polka dots along the bottom for some added shine. Check it out:

See how shiny? I used some Liquid Pearls for the “snow”

Lots of thanks today. Thank you to City Crafter Challenge Blog for this week’s challenge, ALL ABOUT SNOW! Thank you to Cupcake Creations for the color inspiration. And finally, a thanks to Jennifer McGuire’s Holiday Thinking Inking videos, where I learned to do soooo much, including being introduced to Perfect Pearls!

Thanks for stopping by!!!
