Instructions 

Perfect Pearls Rain or Shine Card by Jess Francisco Step 1

Step 1: On a piece of white cardstock measuring 4” x 5.25”, stamp the umbrella image from the Bestest Friends stamp set with Ranger ‘Jet Black’ Archival ink. Stamp the image repeatedly to fill in the top three quarters or so of the card.

Step 2: Place a small amount of Perfect Pearls on a craft sheet or acrylic block and spritz with water. Use a paint brush to apply the perfect pearl and water mixture to the stamped umbrella images. If you’d like, you can add darker Perfect Pearls toward the top and get lighter in color as you move toward the bottom for a gradient effect.

Step 6: Your card is done! Shine it in the light to show off that purple metallic finish. The card looks stormy and gray from one angle, but shines bright purple when turned in the light. Your recipient will know you’re there for them, rain or *shine*.
