Resist Perfect Pearls - Thinking of You

Yogi here today with a clean and simple card... I've often done the Perfect Medium/Perfect Pearls technique, but I don't recall ever trying to do additional stamping and lifting, so that was the experiment I tried on this card. I like the simplicity of it and hope you give it a try.

My card is 110# basic white cardstock (Staples brand), side folded to 4.25"w x 5.5"h.

I stamped the thread edged solid circle (Lost Coast Rubber "Shadow Frame" set) with a juicy Perfect Medium pad (can use other clear embossing pads like Versamark etc) and the applied my Perfect Pearls "Rust" all over the circle area using a soft paintbrush. Try to stay away from applying the Pearls to other areas of your white card. Flick off excess Pearls from card.

Ink up a complimentary solid type image stamp with Perfect Medium and stamp so that part of the image falls within your circle and some falls outside the circle. I used a clear stamp (Inkadinkado "Meadow" set) so I wouldn't need a stamp positioner to double stamp my image. I then carefully dusted Perfect Pearls "Rust" on the image outside of the circle, making sure my Pearls didn't color the lifted colors from the circle. Flick off excess Pearls. Ink up stamp again with the Perfect Medium and re-stamp the image a hair's breath off set.
PS don't clean your stamp between inking.

Stamped the smaller sentiment from the "Thinking of You" set (Quietfire Design) with the Perfect Medium and colored the outside portion with "Blue Raspberry" Perfect Pearls. Flicked off excess. Then re-stamped the sentiment using Versafine Black Onyx and a stamp positioner, off setting the words slightly.

Enjoy playing with this technique.

  1. This is a gorgeous card Yogi! I have some Perfect Pearls that I was going to sell (I can't remember the last time I used them) but doing this technique might just get me to bring them out of the closet :)

    Simply beautiful! So nicely done! Thanks for sharing this technique with us. Also, I hope you and those important to you are safe and dry. My thoughts and prayers all with everyone affected by the flood devastation in Western Canada. It's simply beyond belief. Mother Nature still calls the shots.
