Flying Unicorn WCYDW - Perfect Pearls Emboss Technique

I am here today to share with you a Perfect Pearls Emboss Technique, this technique is truly gorgeous and always seems to turn out so sparkly and beautiful. 

Products Required 

Perfect Pearls Dusting Brush (or any soft brush)
A stamp (any stamp with depth and a nice image will do)
Die Cut Item - Tim Holtz Tattered Leaves

Step 1 - Die cut in thick card your shape, then paint with either your black acrylic paint or black gesso, both seem to work just as well.

Step 2 - You will need to Versamark your shape and emboss with Black UTEE three times. Yep, 3 times, you need a nice thick coating. By three times I mean heat emboss three individual times, emboss and heat, emboss and heat, emboss and heat. 

Step 3 - Versamark your shape, in order for Perfect Pearls to stick. Take your Perfect Pearls and soft brush and lightly randomly brush your colors on, a choice of three colors seems to work the best. How pretty is it already looking??

Step 4 - Ink up your stamp with gold ink, very important not to miss this step as you will need to work fast for step 5. 

Step 5 - Using your heat gun once again melt the UTEE on your shape, once you see it starting to become liquid immediately pick up your stamp and stamp into your shape. Gently remove stamp, look what you now have!!! 

Now that you are complete think of all the possibilities from jewelery making through to card making. 

Wishing all a very happy and creative day.

  8. How do you keep the perfect pearls from coming off. My medium pads are horrible so I would like to use ink. I tried stamping a word with black ink and heating it but if you rub your finger on it, it comes off. someone said you need to spritz with water to seal but that could ruin other things on your project, etc. what ar best adhesives for Perfect Pearls. Please help. They are so pretty.
