Pearl paste on a card with Luisana
Hello friends, welcome back once again to another blog post by your favorite Ecuadorian.
Today I thought I’d play with a new product to me, pearl paste. This was so fun and different to work with and I really enjoyed it.
The first thing I did was spread my paste on a piece of cardstock and let it sit overnight until it was dried completely. I came back to my craft room the next morning and it was ready for me to play with it. I chose to draw circles of different sizes on the back of the paper and cut the circles off with a pair of scissors.
Now that I had my circles cut out, I wanted to make a background that would really show how pretty the pearl glaze is, so I went with a softer looking background using aqua pigment in this beautiful purple color AND distress ink spray. I cleaned my glass surface really well and then I placed several drops of the aqua pigment on it and sprayed the distress ink on top of the drops. I immediately placed my precut piece of cardstock on top of it and applied pressure all over to ensure it was covered with the pretty inky mess.
I used my heat gun to dry off my card and ran it through my hot laminator to get rid of the warping, this trick always works.
Now it was time to make my base look pretty, so i cut it with a rectangular dotted die. I also cut a white card base to a larger size rectangle using the same kind of die, and proceeded to mount my water colored piece on top using sticky foam to give it dimension.
I glued the pearl glazed circles on top, placing some on sticky foam and I stamped this sentiment from the super sentimental set on a scrap piece of the colored card and adhered it to the card using foam mounts.
There you have it friends, this card was so fun and easy to make, pearl glaze is such a different texture which makes it unique and adds a certain extra interest to a card, I really hope you try it out.
I will see you all on Wednesday for our weekly blog hop.
