Pearl Paint Resist

Hi There!

I have recently started on a canvas piece, something different, while following  along as a student in Jennifer McGuire's Inspiration Showcase. There was a class each day for twelve days and I can't begin to tell you how packed this series was, with tips and techniques that are just amazing! So fun! Sadly, the class is now over and I thought I might share a card that I made using a technique that I have learned. I have use resist techniques before, but this time I stamped with a pearl paint and allowed it to dry before I used Distress Inks to colour over the area. I then punched the bird and branch from a Stampin' Up! punch and coloured the pieces with the same colour  Distress Inks and spritzed them with Perfect Pearls in the colour Perfect Pearl which I had mixed with water in a bottle. I also coloured the strips of paper along the top and bottom of the card with Distress Ink. The gems are adhered using the Imaginicse i-rock, which is my new fun tool!

I am entering this card into
1)  the latest Scrapbook Boutique Challenge: Create a project that has the colours Berry, Pink, Aqua and a touch of pearl and
2) the September Inspiration Challenge at The Stamp Spot.

Items used to create this project:


  1. That is so very the colours.

  3. I just got that birdie punch myself and haven't used it yet - you've given me some great inspiration to get it out of it's packaging!
