Using Perfect Pearls and Ranger Inks

Here is the card I'm going to show you how to make.

Supplies you will need:
Embossing Gun
Stamps of your choice
Paint Brushes

1.  First, you will need to make a mixture of Perfect Pearls and water.  Place a small amount of Perfect Pearls in the Mini Mister and then add water.  Shake to mix well.  Test it on a scrap, to see if you like the way it looks when you spray it.  If it's too glittery, add some more water.  If it's not glittery enough, add more Perfect Pearls.

2.  Ink your stamps with the Ranger Distress Inks.  Then, stamp your images onto a sheet of cardstock.  It is okay if the entire image is not stamped.  When you wet the ink, it will spread and blend together.  I stamped 3 butterflies for the card using Black Distress Ink.
3.  Spray only your stamped background image with Perfect Pearls.  I let mine air dry.  This allows the ink to blend more.

4.  Now, we will color the butterflies.  We are going to watercolor with Distress Inks.  Press your desired ink colors onto a plate. 
5.  Spray the ink with the MiniMister full of your Perfect Pearls Mixture.  Mix with a paint brush.
6.  Paint your butterflies and then heat them with an Embossing gun to dry. 
7.  Cut out the butterflies and place them on your card. 

So, there you go.  If you have any questions, leave a comment and I will answer them.
