Skipping Stones Design Tips & Tricks Tutorial

Good morning! Today is my opportunity to share a tutorial using Timeless Texture's background stamps by Skipping Stones Design .
This tutorial is called Background Shimmer. The supplies that I have used are
black cardstock, Perfect Pearls, a soft bristle paintbrush, white pigment ink and a background stamp.

Ink your background stamp with white pigment ink and stamp the black card stock accordingly. The stamp I chose was a little narrow for my project, so I had to stamp the image three times.

Choose your colors of Perfect Pearls. You can use as many colors as you choose. I chose Forever Blue, Turquoise, Forever Green and Blush. With you soft bristle paintbrush, "paint" the Perfect Pearls over your stamped image on the white pigment. It will stick to the pigment ink to without heat setting and the Perfect Pearls gives a BEAUTIFUL iridescent shimmer to your paper. You can see it here...

Here is a good shot of the shimmer on the finished project.

Have fun with this!!! I hope to see lots of projects using this tutorial in the coming weeks!!!
Have a super day!
