Do you have supplies you’ve had for a while but have yet to use? Hey there, it’s Judy V from Created Just 4 U Designs. Today I’m sharing a card project created for CutCardStock. And, I must confess, I used some supplies I’ve had for quite a while and have not used until now, Perfect Pearls.
There are many ways to use Perfect Pearls and I chose to use them as a watercolor on a black background. The shimmer created with this medium is really pretty.
3 clear stamp sets from Crafter’s Companion: “Enchanted Forest Fairy Wishes”, “Fairy Door’ and “Sparkle Garden”
Versamark Watermark Ink
3 Embossing Powders: White and clear from Crafter’s Companion and Lilac Pastel from Stampendous
Perfect Pearls: Forever Green, Forever Violet and Forever Blue
Stamping and Embossing
I started by trimming a piece of black card stock to 4 1/2 x 6 inches.
The sentiment was stamped with Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder.
A flower image was stamped and embossed with clear embossing powder and I stamped a fairy and embossed with lilac embossing powder.
The flowers and fairy wings were colored with Perfect Pearls using a water brush to apply.
Here’s a little closer look at the shimmer of the Perfect Pearls.
Assembling the Card
A 5 x 6 1/2 inch card base with top fold was created by trimming a piece of black card stock to 10 x 6 1/2 inches, scoring at 5 inches along the 10 inch side and folding in half.
I cut a piece of white card stock to 4 7/8 x 6 3/8 inches. The stamped, embossed and colored piece was trimmed to 4 1/2 x 6 inches. both these pieces were centered and adhered onto the black card base.
I hope you have enjoyed my project and provided a little inspiration!
