Pearlescent Ink Work 1

Afternoon all,

I tried so hard to get the beautiful sheen to come up in the photo! Maybe clicking on the image and getting it bigger will help seal the deal?

I have had these backgrounds keeping my background drawer company for quite a while, so decided to see what they would look like with an image on top.

From what I can remember we added Pearlescent Inks to spray bottles, added water, raided the garden for ferns and leaves and used them as masks. Finally, we sprayed the inks over the top. Let dry and then removed the fernery. Helen Brown was so lovely to share this with us and Grace McAndrew was really gracious in allowing us to destroy her garden!

The new Hero Arts Silhouette Grass was so suitable. I think it turned out great. You can still see much of the wonderful b/g AND also be able to enjoy the image. I did hesitate ...lots....coz i was dead scared of ruining my pretty b/g piece, but in the end, gritted the teeth and away I went!

(The little sentiment comes from a SU set.)
