Thinking of You...



I'm beginning to think my craft habits are affected by my mood.  Today was a blah day, dreary, rainy, and I didn't get much sleep.  When I went to craft, I didn't reach for those bright pinks and purples like I usually do.  Today was all about naturals and browns.  I really wanted to experiment with my Perfect Pearls, so I inked up a damask stamp with Perfect Medium, stamped it on a piece of off white cardstock, and then brushed it with Forever Violet.  I thought it came out super cute, with a great distressed look.  All of the other papers are from DCWV's Naturals stack.  The butterfly is a Cuttlebug die that comes with matching embossing folders, and the punch is EK Success.  Stamp from Hero Arts.

My love for Perfect Pearls is growing, although I have to say I'm not too crazy about the tiny thing of Perfect Medium that comes in the kit.  I'm going to have to grab a Versamark pad the next time I go to Michaels.  You can't tell from the picture, but the damask pattern is really shimmery and shiny in the light.  I can't wait to start experimenting with Perfect Pearls!


Stay tuned this week,  I'm going to have a fall card as well as some baking projects!
