Fun with PearlEx

Hi everyone! I’ve had a busy weekend so I’m running late again :/

This week’s card is a very simple one.

P1100098

 

I used a sheet of grey cardstock and stamped it with Hero Art’s Zig Zag background stamp using VersaMark ink. Then I covered it with PearlEx #650 Micropearl.  You can’t really see it in the pic but it’s lovely and shiny! I stamped the greeting using a stamp from the Hero Arts set “It”s Your Day” in Memento “London Fog” ink. The flower was made with the Die-Namics Prima Donna Petals die. I  coloured it lightly with Tim Holtz Spun Sugar distress ink and put some sticky pearls in the centre.

I didn’t need to set the PearlEx on this project but if you want to you can just spray some water in the air and then quickly wave the cardstock through the mist.  Works every time!

Cheers for now!

Lovely Stencils

Hi there! It’s a bit overcast and drizzly here today… a perfect day for papercrafting 🙂

This one is a  quick a easy one layer birthday card. I’ve used Kaisercraft’s Doily stencil and some Tim Holtz Distress Inks.

I’ve sponged the colour on using a makeup sponge and stuck an enamel dot in the middle of the doily.  The greeting is from a Papercraft set called Celebration.  I love using stencils on my cards!

Hope you like it!

Cheers for now
