Technique Tuesday -- Liquid Pearls and Cling Wrap

Hi Everyone! Welcome back to Technique Tuesday at Sparkle N Sprinkle. I was in Spain the month of July. It was a fun trip. I am back in the saddle again and ready to show some more techniques each Tuesday! Sparkle N Sprinkle is now carrying Liquid Pearls in so many delightful colors. I decided to show a technique using them for this Tuesday. You can click here to see all the fabulous colors.

Supplies needed:

  1. cling wrap
  2. any color Liquid Pearls -- I used Daffodil
  3. any color dye ink to compiment the Liquid Pearls
  4. sponge
  5. heat tool -- optional
  6. white or cream card stock
  7. craft sheet

Take the bottle of Liquid Pearls and squeeze some onto the craft sheet.

Wad up a piece of cling wrap and pounce it in the paint, then pounce it all over the card stock. You can either let the paint air dry or heat it a little to speed up the drying time. It dries pretty quickly on its own.

The next step is to take your ink pad -- I used green ink -- and sponge ink all over the card stock until it is covered. Take a tissue and rub off any excess ink. That's it! It makes a neat shimmery background.

Here are a few more backgrounds I made using different color combinations. Have fun coming up with your own!

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

Great technique and tutorial, April! I love the idea, and imagine the pearlescent is very noticeable! I enjoyed smooshing these with my fingers to create texture, but need to try the saram to save my skin LOL thank you! hugs, de
