Episode 86: Different Techniques for Simple Cards

Here are a couple of simple cards that I made up last night.  The first one is stamping with pearlized water.  To get the effect cover your cardstock w/ distress ink.  It reacts to water amazingly.  Spray your stamp with a Mini Mister filled with water and Perfect Pearls.  I used the color perfect pearls.  Stamp directly onto the color cardstock.  It will leave an outline and a pearly essence on the card.  Really pretty.  More details are in the video.

The next card I stamped a background stamp w/ Versamark on acetate paper and put white embossing powder on it.  Then decorated.   I like the way it turned out.  Would be a great boy b-day card.

I learned these techniques from Jennifer McGuire.  You can see her blog HERE.

I am really loving the Jennifer class. Love your version of the stamping with pearl water. There are so many techinques in this class, I will be busy for month playing with them. I am not much of a "heart" person, but I love the "Believe" canvas with the photos.
