Techniques galore at Just for Fun

Well I didn't think it could get any harder but Neet's choice this week is favourite techniques ! oh what to do I have all ready done a few this month bleaching , kiss resist, wrinkle free and letterpress with embossing folders ............. wow there are just so many out there
Ok so here we go with my first Christmas card of the season embossed with snowflake tinsel and water coloured with distress inks and perfect pearl not difficult but effective :) I use an acrylic block for my pallet and just touch the corner of my ink pad to it to lay down some ink then spritz with a little water, pick up a little PP with my paint brush and mix, a little goes along way . I used a new colour Biscotti which is a lovely compromise between the pearl and the gold :)

I hope you can see the subtle shimmer the PP has given.
Now it's time for you to have a play and share with us at Just for Fun
Oh and do check out Zoe's and Neets they are extra fabulous week :)
