Wonderland at Make it Crafty

This weeks inspiration at Make it Crafty is a Wonderland theme with an optional choice of sparkle without using glitter. It's hard for me to do something without glitter when I think of sparkle so I decided to dust off my perfect pearls and see what I could come up with.

I colored my project and then added Pearl Perfect Pearls to it. I then thought uh-oh, it covers too much of the image. This is what it looked like.

I thought I had ruined it since I had already set the Perfect Pearls but I found that I could buff the picture and reduce the amount of sheen. This is what it looks like after that.

Much better don't you think? Next I took a black plastic frame and Distress Paint - Picket Fence, Broken China and Picked Raspberry and colored the frame

005 (Medium)Next I added a butterfly swirl that I inked with Black Soot Distress Ink and then added Pearl Perfect Pearls to it. A perfect fit to my frame.

I hope that I have inspired you to try something a little different and step outside of your comfort zone, you never know what you will find!
