Instructions

 

 

Perfect Pearls Thank You Card Step 1

STEP 1: Treat a piece of White Cardstock with Anti-Static Powder and stamp the coffee cup image three times in a line in Embossing Ink. Pour Black Embossing Powder over the stamped image and tap off the excess. Use your Heat Tool to melt the powder.

STEP 2: Use the Perfect Pearl flat brush to pick up a small amount of the Perfect Copper Perfect Pearls and pounce it on your Craft Sheet. Dust off the brush and repeat for Forever Red. Spritz each of the piles of powder with the Distress Sprayer to create a liquid paint similar to watercolor.

STEP 3: Use a small paintbrush to pick up the Forever Red and apply the color along the right edge and bottom of the coffee cups. The embossed edges will keep the paint mixture inside the stamped lines. Pick up a little of the Perfect Copper on the brush and blend with the red. Experiment with how much water you add to get varying intensities of color.
