so grateful.xx

good afternoon, not sure about my piccys today, i normally photo them at night but couldn`t wait.lol.so what a disaster i have had making this card.the swirly pearly thingy me jig by the flower was supposed to be pearls but i used liquid pearls and as usual they looked like bird poop so i used a paintbrush and painted them into one big line and plonked some dew drops on the top.lol.anyway this card i am entering into this weeks passion for promarkers challenge with the theme this week being gratitude and as you can see my little whiff of joy girl is really grateful and is writing out her thankyou letters.lol.

products used are my minds eye papers,coredinations card.liquid pearls (yuk),dew drops,pages from an old book to make the lolipop flower.pearl brad.whiff of joy images coloured with promarkers.hero arts sentiment.blue chalk.

close up of the flower and the yukky pearly thingy me jig.




and a sideways view.
thanks so much for popping by and if you`d like to leave a comment too thats great.if anyone has any tips too on using liquid pearls i `d love to know them.lol.right off to make hubby a cuppa or maybe the other way right, hehehehhee.enjoy the rest of your day and you never know i may be back again later.luv coops.xxx

You are too hard on yourself its a lovely card. I thought the swirls were meant. I use Liquid Pearls all the time, but only in very small droplets. Elaine

stunning card! love the images that are combined. I use liquid pearl drops and the only advice I can give is patience and practice. I hold my nozzle really close to the car and squeeze a small amount, before releasing the pressure and removing the nozzle. i do find it hard to get them a matching size though!
