Stamping with water...
Trying like mad to play catch up. But all I want to do is go out and plant flowers. My oh my, that is my summer addiction. :)
Thought I would share a card inspired by the project I taught with Tim last month. For the main floral piece on this, I started with white Neenah cardstock. I covered it heavily with Broken China Distress Ink until it was totally blue. I then took the lovely Wildflower Garden stamp and inked it with Versamark. Before stamping it, I sprayed the stamp with a Perfect Pearl and water mix. After stamping this on the inked piece, I zapped it with a heat gun. Thanks to the unique properties of Distress Inks, I am left with the sparkly, ghost-like stamped image. Lovey that technique...
Love the silver look of the butterflies. Just covered Neenah white cardstock with Pumice Stone Distress Ink. Sprayed it with lots of pearlized water (Perfect Pearls in water) and let it dry. Punched... creating metallic accents. (This finish matches my MacBook Pro exactly - lovely.)
Supplies: Hero Arts stamps (dots, flower, greeting) and Grass chalk ink and Grass notecard; Prima flower; Distress Inks; Neenah cardstock; Versamark; Perfect Pearls; Mini Mister; Punch; Pin; Papertrey Ink button; Creative Impressions silk ribbon and twine.
I get a lot of questions on the Perfect Pearls I use. The white-silver-like one I like is called Perfect Pearl. So, it's full name is "Perfect Pearl Perfect Pearls." Nice and confusing, eh? You can find the right one HERE - can't beat the price...
Oh, and THIS is my current most-used stamp set. Delicious.
Off to put laundry away. Jealous, aren't you? Blech.
