Perfect Pearl Butterflies

Hello again. I'm on a roll.  I have been making some more cards.  Here are some more Thank You cards for my mother. She gave me this older Stampin Up stamp set and asked me to make her some Thank You's with it. I chose this butterfly from the set, and used some new Perfect Pearls I got for Christmas, to color them in.  They are so gorgeous. The shimmer is fabulous!

I smeared some matching Distress inks on my non stick craft sheet and then added Perfect Pearls and some water.  I used the home made shimmery paints to color in the black heat embossed butterflies.   

 Can you see the shimmer?  It was hard to photograph.  This blue one was so pretty!

This gold one definitely shows it a little better.  I think the results were so good because I used some high quality water color paper to make the cards.  It holds up well to the scoring and folding, the heat embossing and the water coloring.  It didn't warp at all and I used plenty of heat and water.

I guess if you use quality ingredients, just like with cooking, you get a yummy result. Hee!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.  I hope you all have a happy New Year.  I don't think I will be doing anything wild.  Maybe a movie on the couch?  Woo Hoo!!   Happy 2012!
