Dreams Come True

Hello!  Today I have been playing with some Perfect Pearls for the first time.  I bought some in Pearl color to make a spraying mist and then decided to use some on a black card using Versamark since I did not buy any Perfect Medium which is best for use with the pearls when stamping. 
I was inspired to make this design for the challenge at Less Is More....make a one layer card with the theme Dream.  Instead of White space, I have a lot of Black space which fits into the guidelines for CAS.  I stamped the Repeat Impressions Dandelion Stamp and verse with Versamark ink on a one layer of Black CS and used Rangers Embossing Pearl Green EP on the foliage and verse and heat embossed.  On the rest of the image-the petals-I brushed on the perfect Pearls and removed the excess.  I love the ethereal(light and airy) feel that resulted.
Challenges:
Less Is More: Week 297 One layer card with theme of Dreams.
CAS on Sunday: Challenge #93 is Heat Embossing.
Addicted To Stamps: Challenge #214 Clean and Simple


Have a great day!
I love reading your comments. Theresa

An elegant and very classy card Theresa. The black base is perfect for showing off the super shimmer of perfect pearls. So glad you decided to use those as they make the dandelion seeds look so light and airy. Thank you so much for sharing this with us at Less is More. xx
