Soft Shimmery Leaves and Berries

HYCCT1326 - Mix It Up - Mixed Media - Challenge:  Create a card using mixed media, a technique involving the use of two or more artistic media, such as ink and pastel or painting and collage, that are combined in a single composition.

Hopefully this qualifies as mixed media.  This is a CASE of a card I saw on Nichole Heady's blog using the pearl-ex powders and she has a tutorial.  The images were stamped in versa mark ink and then colored with pearl-ex powders using a soft paint brush.  To ensure the pearl-ex powders won't rub off, the card was sprayed with hairspray as a fixative.  The "berries" were added using white pearl iridescent dimensional fabric paint.

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Kind & Caring Thoughts
Paper:  Shimmery White, Forest Green
Ink:  Versa Mark
Accessories:  Pearl-Ex Assortment #2 (Micro Pearl & Spring Green), White Pearl Iridescent Dimensional Fabric Paint, Soft Bristle Paint Brush, Swiffer Cloth, Hairspray
