Hey y’all! Kelli here with another easy tutorial on Perfect Pearls but this time using stencils. This is a very easy process and these pearls are so bright and cheerful- sure to add joy to your day!
Step 1: Place your stencil on top of your grey cardstock and tape down using low adhesive tape or washi tape. Make sure it isn’t super sticky tape otherwise it might be hard to get it off without tearing.
Step 2: Get your Ranger Perfect Medium Pad out and smoosh over your stencil. Make sure your stencil stays in place or you could get a double image. Also, you’ll have to press down with your pad to make sure your medium gets between the stencil cut out.
Step 3: Take off the stencil and you will be able to see where the Perfect Medium adhered to the cardstock.
Step 4: Next, get out your brush and Perfect Pearls in the color of your choice, mine was Mint. Dab your brush in the pearls- but be careful not to get too much. A little goes a long way!
Step 5: Pounce the brush on the cardstock and move the pearls around in a circular motion.
Step 6: Cover the whole stamped area with the Perfect Pearls. Gently swipe a dry sweeping pad over the whole page (and your work area!) to pick up the excess pigment.
Step 7: Now, get your stamps out! Place your stamp on an acrylic block (or stamping platform) and spread your Perfect Medium Pad on the rubber side of the stamp.
Step 8: Place your stamp on your cardstock and lift. You should be able to see where the Perfect Medium adheres to your cardstock.
Step 9: Much like Step 4- get some pearls on your brush.
Step 10: Move your powder around your cardstock with your brush. In this case I wanted to use two Perfect Pearls on this butterfly so I placed Gumball Pink down the center of the butterfly and used Blush on the wings.
Step 11: Next is time to assemble the card. I fussy cut the butterflies and trimmed down my background. I placed everything on a card base and affixed using foam tape. Jazzed it up a little with Liquid Pearls and I think it came out beautifully! Before you give this card away, be sure to spray a light mist of water over the entire card. This will keep the Perfect Pearls from rubbing off.
