Hi Again Friends,

So I spent the good part of the morning looking for something -- and isn't it always the way? -- I found it in the last place I looked.  I almost went out to the warehouse.

I was experimenting today with embossing powder and pearl ex, once I found it ( now you know what I was looking for).  I have had this stuff forever and never knew what to do with it.  I mixed it with watercolor a few times and it was OK  but it seemed to take away from the pureness of the water color, at least  for the effect I was looking for at the time.

This is definitely an experiment, I am not too happy with the outcome, but I do like the bird, lets see what I come up with by the end of the week, although I ma still working on these cards in between everything, trust me, While dinners cooking I score and fold, while sitting in the car I cut ribbon, while watching TV  I cut ribbon add bling etc. I'm sure you get the picture-- it is called plodding along, I have a goal and it is a joy to make each and everyone of these cards for the women that will receive them.  If just one woman out of the 200 gets joy out of getting the card I am blessed by that.

I just love how the bird came out

The crown came out a bit smudgy I think my next experiment will be on a darker card stock.

PTI: Kraft  and orange zest card stock
big and bossy embossing powder copic liner pen
ribbon reuse from older project
Autumn leaves stamps
Pearl ex:  silver, micro pearl and super russet

Kraft journal: recycle 
Sunday funday:AG

Have a blessed day, Diana
