Edited: A couple of people have asked me what stamp I have used here. It is from A Muse... sorry, I should have said that.
Did everyone have a lovely relaxing long weekend? Here in Australia we have one more day off to enjoy due to Anzac Day.
So I have been busy experimenting with different products and techniques. For the two cards below, I have used Perfect Pearls... I have not used it before and I have mixed feelings about it. I am only showing you these cards today in the hope that you might be able to offer some advice.
I stamped the image (ballerina) using a wet ink and then brushed the perfect pearls over the top. I then also mixed some perfect pearls with water and spritzed both cards - they have a lovely shimmer.
Ok, first off, how do I 'set' the perfect pearls so it does not come off - I did spray it lightly with water - is there anything else I should be using?
Also with this second card (because I have used a darker card stock I assume) there is too much perfect pearls around the image, which makes the sentiment appear smudgy - any recommendations on how to remove it without wiping off too much of the perfect pearls?
And lastly, any tips on how to photograph these cards so that the shimmer comes through?
Hoping someone out there has used this product and can help me :)
Have a great day.
