Choose your favorite watercolor paper, stamps and ink pads.
Of course I recommend my favourite Versafine Onyx Black Ink.
You will need your favourite watercolors as well :-)
The main ingredient is Perfect Pearls. Shiny pigments available in all colours have a waste range of usage. You can add it to your paints, to your texture paste or to your gesso. Everything is nicer with a little bit of shimmer, isn't it ? :)
You can find cheaper substitute, but I don´t recommend it. I bought it, compared it and definitely the original Perfect Pearls is better.
Of course you need some bottle. You can buy clean & new one or recycle the old one you found in your household. I like to add a few beads because the pigment tends to stuck at the bottom of the bottle. Every time you are going to use it - just shake it and it´s as good as new one :)
Fill the bottle with water and add small amount of pigment. You can always add more pigment and achieve the shine you are looking for.
Stamp your image and use pigment ink. It´s wet for a long time that´s why you have enough time to pour over some clear embossing powder. This will help you with colouring and adds extra shine on to your card.
Of course this is optional step.
Now the best part of the project: colouring. Use your pearl water instead of the plain one.
This is the final card:
Shine you get is simply AMAZING ♥
I have created one more card. Originally this stamp set is designed for Christmas but I used is for my wedding card here.
Remeber you can use your stamp set as you wish. There are no limits in creative world ;)
Hope you like this tutorial as well as my cards. Have an amazing day
