I'm waiting on my order from Simon Says Stamp and I'm getting really impatient. It's my first time ordering from them and unfortunately I think it will be the last. I ordered June 2nd, it didn't ship until the 7th and I still haven't gotten it. Mind you, I'm in Canada but I've read that some people in Canada have received their orders in a week or so.. and I'm also afraid I'd end up paying duty because my order was 103$ and I've heard that if it's about 100$, you get charged around 20$. Any Canadian scrappers out there who had ordered from SSS?
:( I should've just gotten the reinkers locally. It probably ends up being the same price with the USD conversion and the duty, plus I wouldn't have to wait this long. Oh well... enough ranting... Where was I? Perfect Pearls, right...
I started out with paper from the Prima Fairy Flora pad. I used Versamark ink for this "floral" background that I got from a 2 for 5$ deal at Michaels. It is by Hampton Art. I then used the Perfect Pearls all over the image. I used all the colours in the Aged Patina set: Heirloom Gold, Blue Patina, Pewter, and Green Patina. I set it with a few spritzes of water and dried it with my heat tool. The picture doesn't show it but when it hits the light it's really shiny and so pretty.
For the central image, I used a stamp from Hero Arts, embossed it with gold embossing powder on cardstock from Me and My Big Ideas. The lilac ribbon added a nice touch. So simple, but I love how it turned out. Here's the inside of the card.
