Make It Monday #6: Adding Colour to Basic Pearls

Make It Monday #6: Adding Colour to Basic Pearls

I have a quick and simple project to share with you today.  This card also features the one layer technique.  You can read about One Layer cards HERE. 

My project felt like it was missing something, and I felt it needed some pearls however, the colour didn’t match.  so I used my Dark Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Marker to colour them in before placing them on my project.  I shared a tip on how to colour your embellishments in last weeks Tip & Technique series HERE
