This month's CCEE Challenge hostess, Sabrina, shared with us that the Finnish for February is “helmiku”, which means “month of the pearl”. Snow melting on twigs and refreezing as drops has a pearl-like look.
For this week's challenge, we could take it easy and just use pearls/Liquid Pearls on our card, or we could be adventurous and try out some pearl techniques; pull out that old Pearl-Ex or Perfect Pearls!!
For my card, I embossed the butterfly with black embossing powder and then painted it with Pearl-Ex mixed the Future Floor Finish.
