Thank you cards - using Perfect Pearls

A few weeks ago, I was inspired by Jill Foster  who shared her creations using Inchie Arts and Pan Pastels.  The problem is I don't have any chalks or pastels, so I thought I would try Perfect Pearls and Perfect Pearls Medium to achieve a similar result.  I am pleased with the results I achieved, but will still try to get hold of some chalks some time down the track.  Jill demonstrated her collage effect - it looks so free and soft, and 'arty' that I just had to give it a try!  I have used small tags, cut with a Paper Smooches die, to make a few cards to take with me for occasions when I might want to say 'Thank you' - it pays to be prepared!  I used PaperCrafters Workshop stencils for most of the background, and then added some stamping - small snippets of text, some graphic images etc.  I also sprayed with Smooch Spritz when the stamping was completed.   Some background paper and a few embellishments completed the cards.  IRL the tags have a lovely shimmery effect - I think the potential for these is endless, as each one is unique.  Hope you like them!
