PERFECT PEARLS - DRY & WET TECHNIQUE
Hi and thank you for stopping by....
For this DL card I used easy lift-off tape to blank the top and bottom part of the card to give me a centre border
I used a background stamp inked with a StazOn Jet Black Ink Pad and stamped the exposed area
The next stage was to dab Perfect Medium over the stamped area then add the Perfect Pearls. From the set I chose to use 'madarin', 'mint' and 'cappuccino'
Once the colours had been blended I heat set that area, then removed the masking tape and stamped the sentiment using the same ink pad
The beautiful shimmer of the Perfect Pearls can be seen on the above, and below, photos
I stamped the Love Birds onto black card using the Perfect Medium and covered the area with a clear embossing powder and heat set it
I added a little water onto the craft mat and picked up some of the mint colour, made a paste and applied the colour to the birds' bodies. I did the same procedure for their faces using the mandarin colour, and for the beaks, tails and the branch they are perched on I used biscotti from the same set
I fussy cut the love birds, added mounting foam to the back and adhered to the card
To complete I adhered this to a black base, that I think, enhances the design
