SOS 374: Pearls are always appropriate

This week, I am your hostess for Shopping Our Stash!  I chose the theme based on this graphic:

Here are my three projects:

  • Strathmore watercolor paper
  • Color Bursts in Ultramarine and Pthalo Green mixed in wells with Perfect Pearls (see how I incorporated those into this challenge?? Ha!) in Heirloom Gold.
  • I used up a bunch of pearls from a generic pack from Michael's
  • The tail on the mer-life card was cut from a panel made many moons ago.  I added Prismacolor marker to the edges and rubbed the tail with some DecoArt Metallic Lustre in Gold Rush.
  • The oval pearl on the oyster card was snipped from a K & Company sticker set from 2012.
  • The corners of the oyster card were snipped with a Fiskars punch.

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you'll join me at Shopping Our Stash!
