Passionate for Pearls, session II

Here is one of the cards we made for our technique club this morning. Our topic was Passionate for Pearl, II and the techniques included Painted Pearls, LuminousPearls, and mixing Pearl -Ex with water and gum arabic to make a Sparkle Spray. Here is the card that we used to demonstrate the Painted Pearl technique. The background is actually one that I CASEd from Beate Johns. I really like this background. I started off with a More Mustard 4 x 5 1/4 panel of CS and tone on tone Stamped it with the Canvas BG. Now it is ready to stamp the really neat word stamp down the left hand side of the card (I'm sure going to miss this set.) The focal point of the card is the 2 small images in the middle- the flower & the butterfly. After heat embossing them with gold EP, we painted inside the lines using a direct aquapen to Pearl-Ex technique. The aquapens were actually filled with Future floor wax. Such an easy technique with such a big impact! I'll share the other card using the Luminous Pearls technique tomorrow since I have to go in to work tomorrow evening and won't have much time for stampin'! Take care!
