I made this card using a technique from Crafts & Things Magazine (Dec 2010). Put pearl-ex on craft mat. Add a bit of water and mix well. Repeat with 2 more colors. Using glossy cardstock, put cardstock glossy side down in to pearl-ex. Twist and lift up. Heat with heat gun, and repeat layering as many times as you want until you get the look you like, making sure to heat in between. Once in a while the pearl-ex mixture will kind of bubble up. Personally I like the texture.
Then I cut a piece of acetate and stamped Passion from Hampton Art with staz-on. I then painted the flowers and lips with Smooch. Make sure this is dry before going to the next step. I glued the glossy cardstock onto the layers of other cardstock and then the card. I put a tiny bit of dimensional magic behind some of the dark layers on the acetate so it would not show through, the I put the acetate on top and put theClass A Peels from Stampendous arond the acetate. WaaLaa it's done. Yeah

  1. Oooh, I like it, Karen! Thanks for telling how-to; there's no way I ever would have figured out how you did this one!
