The ornaments are painted with radiant pearls, which gives a very nice shimmer that doesn't show up in the picture. The bows are stamps that are painted with radiant pearls, then stamped. The ribbon swags are drawn freehand.
What I learned while making this card:
1. Radiant pearls take a LONG time to dry
2. If you touch them before they are dry, they smear EVERYWHERE and there is no way to fix it.
3. It is much harder to paint ANYTHING freehand, even just a line, than it is to stamp.
4. Stamping small words on two layers of cardstock DOES NOT WORK!
However, if you ignore all of the mistakes and imagine the card the way it was in my mind, I think it is pretty cool. Thanks for looking!

Very nice card christy. The one thing I've learned about RPs is a little goes a long way, if you don't put in on too thick it doesn't take long to dry at all & you can always put more on later if the look isn't dark enough.
