Pearl Jellyfish

Hello All,

For today I am playing along with CAS Watercolour Card Challenge, Hand Stamped Sentiments, and CASology. Jennifer McGuire's video on Perfect Pearls was absolutely inspiring. So I decided to dust off my Perfect Pearls. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

This background started black, white and gray.I had made it over a year ago and thought it would look nice on a future card. ( why would throw anything away.)  I used Distress Ink to sponge on blue and green throughout creating the watercolor. Quickly I added iridescent purple Perfect Pearls before the ink and water had time to dry. The ocean needed movement and thought this cover panel would be perfect.
Above: So I watched a card video with Jennifer McGuire (My husband called it card porn. 😂) She demonstrated lifted the powder with VersaMark ink on the stamp. It left an amazing negative space! Click here to see her video.  One little detail I forgot, not set it first. So it kind of worked.  I had to clear heat emboss them because it needed a bit more definition. Left/Below: This shot is taken in the light. It changed the entire ocean scene to a shimmery water scene. Right/Bottom: After clear embossing the little creatures I thought it needed a bit more glow. So, I sponged over the embossed images with white pigment ink. The effect is amazing!
