Perfect Touch with Pearls

Hello!  Lisa here with you today and I have a new CAS beauty to share with you...



Supplies Used:



This card is simple to create, but has a simplistic beauty to it as well.  I started by stamping the background with two inks on the center of my panel.  I then diecut my butterfly image in the center of the stamped background, lifted the wings slightly and adhered it back in the negative cut.  I then stamped my sentiment, distressed the edges and adhered the pearls going up at a diagonal.

I hope to see you play along in our latest challenge: Pearls

Thank you so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
Lisa

Roses & Pearls

I got a little grungy with this weeks challenge - to use Pearls.


 On the top layer I sponged on Antique Linen thru the Weave stencil first, then added some texture paste. Once dry, I sponged on Picked Raspberry Distress Ink. I added some flicked on drops of color for interest.
 For the burlap, I painted it with Gesso and then sponged on Picked Raspberry. I added a bit of Wink of Stella to the raised textured pasted areas and to the burlap. I had to add just a pinch of Raspberry to the edges of the card and added a bow.

Products I used from the SweetStamps.com Store:

Watercolor Poppies


I used the SweetStamps Poppy Garden image on this card and I tried out a new product named Color Burst and had a great time coloring the poppies and creating the background.  Color Burst is a powder in a small bottle and when it hits the water it will burst into color so if you aren't a pro at watercolor this product make it look like you're pro. See a video here.

The image is heat embossed with detail black powder, this does help stop the flow of water from the background onto the blossoms and I didn't wet the blossoms until after the background was created.  Rather than blow the powder onto the paper I placed it in a paint pallet and picked it up with a wet brush to avoid getting the powder on the flower petals.   A tiny bit of powder goes a long way!

The yellow panel was sponging with the ATC  Mini Art Stencil - Stained Glass by moving it around the panel as I sponged with Ranger Distress Ink - Mustard Seed.

The small butterflies are from Globecraft and Piccolo and they are heat embossed with the Micro White powder then attached to the card with Aleene's tacky glue.
