Compendium of Curiosities 2 Challenge #16 - Perfect Pearls Mist

I'm participating in the 16th Challenge from Tim Holtz's book "Compendium of Curiosities 2"  on Linda's blog. This time the technique is the Perfect Pearls Mist on pg. 54 of Tim's book. Following the directions in the book, I created this ATC background
 Added a thin white acrylic paint border, then used these colors of Perfect Pearls with water to color the peacock images on the background.
 To finish this atc, added gold acrylic paint over the white border and to the edges of a "beauty" sticker. Colored  a white paper flower with Perfect Pearl Mists and gold acrylic paint on the petal edges, then added a turquoise "pearl" to the center.
