Thinking Inking

It is always nearly impossible to capture the shine from the paper when you spray with perfect pearls... but I think I managed to do it this afternoon with the flash on my camera on!  Although it looks splotchier than in real life!.
Supplies: PTI Wreath for all seasons, Papermania white pigment ink, PTI Dark Chocolate, 
Versamark ink, clear embossing powder, I rock crystal heat setting tools and clear gems, 
Fiskars Upper Crest border punch, crochet thread and Distress Inks - tea dye, 
walnut stain and spiced marmalade and Ranger/Tim Holtz blending tool.

This is what the card actually looks like after getting a good dose of tea dye, walnut stain and spiced marmalade!

Am enjoying getting inky!  If you haven't heard about the wonderful 8 weeks of free online classes that 2peas is currently hosting with Guest Designer Jennifer McGuire... you need to check it out ASAP right here.  It's called Holiday Thinking Inking.

Enjoy and hope you have a great week.

Really gorgeous tones on this card, love the way you've tied the string! I know what you mean, it is so perplexing to get that right look on the camera! Most cards do look good in real life - for that - I'm thankful for!

This card is so beautiful, Deirdre!! TFS the first photo took it with the flash light. I'll try the way when I make some. It's difficult to show the actual shining of perfect pearls on the photograph. ;)
