Glimmer Mist Resist

This is my card for the following challenges:

I started this card by making the two background panels. I stamped the swirl, which is from the Baroque Motifs Stampin' Up set with Versamark and embossed with white EP. I then sprayed Juniper Glimmer Mist onto my craft mat, then soaked it up with a piece of cotton wool and wiped it over the embossing. I distressed the edges and rubbed Broken China Distress ink over the edge. The main image is by Elusive Images and is stamped onto card that has had the same Glimmer Mist wiped over it. I've then cut it out with a deckle edged Nestability and blended some Faded Jeans Distress ink around the edge. I mounted it onto a piece of navy card and I cut around the edge with some deckle scissors.

The sentiment is also from the same Elusive Images set. The bottom layer is from Stampin' Up and the pearls have been coloured with a Petrol Blue ProMarker.

I've had a very leisurely day today as I took the day off from work. I popped into town this morning and then have crafted on and off all day. I feel quite spoilt !

Thanks for looking
