Pearl's Got the Blues

It looks like I'm stuck on the color blue here, but that's because you don't see the tons of other cards I did between these postings!

This card features a new release from Michelle Perkett Studio called Pearl.  This one doesn't have a lot of supplies for once.  I printed her on cardstock from my HP printer & embossed her with Ultra fine clear embossing powder.  Next I colored her with colored pencils & blended with a blending stump and Goo Gone.  Then I highlighted her with several different colors of Magic Scraps with a Zig glue pen.  I wanted dimension on the pearls, so I put Blue Pearl 3-D Crystal Laquer on top of the colored pearls.  After she dried, I cut her out, added the eyelash yarn from my stash and then glued the image on to the card with a glue runner.

Inspiration Challenge for the NEW Michelle Perkett Challenge Blog
This was inspired by Michelle's Forest Fairy, Emerald Enchantment and Winter cards that were all done in monochromatic colors.  I originally was going to make Pearl's skin flesh toned, but I decided to experiment and I'm glad I did.  ~  Lee  ~
