CC2C #25 A Palette of Pearls

This week, Linda from Studio L3 has assigned us page #53 from Tim Holz's Compendium of Curiosities Vol. 2, using the Ink Palette with Perfect Pearls.  I only have 2 sets, the metals and the patina.and a lone pink, so was sorta limited. And since I'm still working on Christmas, I thought of an ornament.  Now, if only I can line up the stamping with the die cut! Those and the background stamp are from Memory Box.

I'll admit, at first I wasn't thrilled with the first color I tried.  But the next one came out with more "umphhh", so I worked the brush a bit more in the first color, and bam..much better!

 So, there is still time to explore this technique...and as an exciting bonus, this week's challnege is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp, who are offering a $25 gift certificate---just in time to get some holiday supplies! I for one, really need some cardstock! (FYI: Michael's sells Core'dination premium solid core paperpacks, but it is so not like regular Core'dinations paper! It says 65 lb., but it is too flimsy for card backs...really only good for that I have 5 packs of the stuff!)


  1. wow am so loving your fab colourings on the bauble, xx

  2. This is lovely Kim! I didn't get to join in as I was so up in the air by the time I got it (Thursday night) it was too late to mix and let dry! Never mind. After seeing yours I will definately give it a go!
