So tweet

Another Wednesday and another challenge over at MMCS challenge blog - thanks to all of you who played BINGO with us last week - we saw so many lovely cards and projects.

This week we are challenging you to create a CAS (clean and simple) card/project - can't wait to see what you'll create for us this week x

Our sponsor this week is Tiddly inks digital stamps

As well as the challenge we are currently holding a DT call so if you are interested in joining our friendly team hop over and get all the details on the challenge blog.

For my card I used a Sarah Paris Freebie with a sentiment from a designed to delight set. I added some embroidery thread wrapped and then tied in a coordinating bow. I also had a rummage right at the back of my craft cupboard and decided to bite the bullet and use up some of my liquid pearls.

The problem I have previously had with these little bottles is that when I add a "pearl" it ends up looking more like a hersheys kiss ! After much browsing the internet and trying different techniques I braved it and added the "pearl" dots to my card. I found the best technique was to add a a generous dot of liquid pearls then give it a good flick from underneath - voila no more peak on your pearl !!

Here is another pic

I would like to add my card to the following challenges;

My time made easy pretty palette - White, pink & grey
Hybrid chick card caravan - CAS
Dynamic duo's - Yummy colour combo
Incy wincy designs challenge - Use more than one digi
Paper & such design blog - Feathered friends

Thanks for visiting me today x

Thank you for the tip - that Hershey's kiss look has been such a problem for me. Gorgeous card - the liquid pearls are a great accent and I love the little twine. So glad to see you at Dynamic Duos!

I agree with all previous comments... such a beautiful card Suzie! May I ask what you mean by "giving it a good flick from underneath"? Do you mean like flicking off the excess embossing powder when embossing something? so I keep the cardstock with the pearls on the top and I flick from the other side (bottom) underneath each pearl? Thanks for your inspiration!
