Perfect pearls Christmas

Hi there, and happy Saturday to you!

Fabiola is our hostess for this month, and she has set a fabulous stash challenge today over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown – to use perfect pearls.

There are several techniques for using this cool product, and it’s easy to use wet or dry.  The most difficult thing is deciding which technique to use!

One of the easiest ways to use perfect pearls is to stamp an image using a sticky ink, such as versamark or perfect medium, then add the perfect pearls with a soft brush direct to the image – I used perfect gold for the star. I mixed a little more perfect gold with water on a palette and painted this over some sections of the star.

Next, I stamped the sentiment in versamark ink and heat embossed in white.

To give a starry sky look, I mixed perfect pearl with water and splashed this randomly over the card.  It’s so pretty in real life – the sheen really glimmers in the light. 

I fixed the perfect pearls to the card with a light mist of water, then popped up my artwork on an A6 base card, and added some gold sequins to finish.

I hope you’ve been inspired to join the challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown where the team have designed lots of examples for you. 

Enjoy your weekend
