Thanks for the comments. I'm glad that you enjoyed the info I shared yesterday.
A few questions came up...so I decided to continue with Perfect Pearls talk today...
Can the distress reinkers be used in the mini mister without Perfect Pearls...YES! The color does not break down. It makes a GREAT simple background. Any color works well.
Can the Perfect Pearls be used in the mini mister without the reinkers? YES...take a look...
I wanted a light background for this stamp, since I knew I'd be using black ink and a dark background would not show off the stamp.
So...this background is Perfect Red Perfect Pearls mixed with water only...no additional color from the reinkers.
After I stamped Santa...I thought he needed a little green.
You can touch your finger to the Perfect Medium pad & apply it whereever you want to add more Perfect Pearls.
See the green around the top? That's how that happened. Apply the Perfect Medium with your finger & brush the Perfect Pearls directly over that area & MAGICALLY...the pearls only stick where you added the Perfect Medium.
Here's a little tip for applying Perfect Pearls to a tiny area...Use the Cut & Dry nibs! Touch the tip of the nib to the Perfect Medium pad & you can add a tiny spot of shimmer anywhere you choose....Easy!
Here's another use for Perfect Pearls in water. Sorry...this photo doesn't look good...I had to delete it...so you'll have to trust me here. HA!
Put Perfect Pearls in water in the mini mister & mist dark cardstock. Try Sunflower Sparkle...turquoise...heirloom gold...for a quick shimmery background. It totally changes the look of the cardstock. It's a total WOW!
There was a question @ CHA about using Krylon spray to set the pearls. It's not necessary. Just a very light misting with plain water from the mini mister, sets the Perfect Pearls. No smelly sprays are needed.
My new BFF Jessica sent me an email yesterday. She played with Perfect Pearls and used them over embossed paper for a fun background. Check it out! Thanks for being brave Jessica & sharing your art!
Anything I forgot??
