Simon Says: Just Add Pearl!

Hi!
Do you ever wake up and wonder where the time went?  I did this morning!  I can't believe October is already almost over...luckily, it made me feel energized and ready to take on the next month!  Hopefully you're feeling ready for the week too : )

To help jump start your week, Simon has another Vintage Challenge!  This week, the theme is pretty fun and easy - just add pearl!  : )    Below is some inspiration from three of the Simon Says Stamp & Show Design team members...and further below are links to even more projects by the DT!  

Made by Suzz!
Suzz says: I am always looking for birthday cards and wanted a special one for my younger sister.  She loves her garden and will appreciate all the flowers and pearls.  I used the Hero Arts Fabulous Flourish and Big clock to set the backdrop for my Artistic Outpost Birds.  The Prima Flowers and Clock accents add texture around my birds.

Supplies:



Made by Sandra
 
Sandra says: Recently I bought this art journal and I wanted to make a double page with my favorite theme, Halloween. My inspiration came from a Halloween tag I made a few weeks ago with the interior of a haunted house. I started with some Dylusion ink sprays for my first layer, but soon it took a whole other direction when I covered almost everything with Gold Paint Dabber. I did a lot of die cutting with my trusty Vagabond, like on the Fence, the Branch Tree and of course the Dress Form. Like always, I enjoyed dressing it up! I spritzed some Crushed Grape Dylusions Spray over it and just had to add some Accents Pearls on it!

Supplies:




Made by May!
May says: One of my favorite pearl tricks is to color a stamp with Distress Markers, then spritz with Perfect Pearls mist and stamp. This gives a gentle watercolor effect, as well as adding a pearlized shimmer to my stamped image. One of my favorite things about using perfect pearls is that in some light, it looks flat, but let the light hit it just right and you have an explosion of sparkle! For this card I also used perfect pearls mist on the background, and perfect pearls powder with perfect medium to create the chicken wire you see on the background. 

Supplies:
