Heated Pearls

Hello everyone. I'm excited to share a technique with you today. The background of this card was created using a technique called heated pearls.

To create the background mix school glue and bronze Pearl Ex powder together and then stippled mixture onto the glossy paper which was brayed with purple ink. Heat set the mixture once it is applied. As you heat set the mixture bubbles will start to appear. The digital element I used for my focal point is from Polkadoodles All Around & Everywhere cd. Click here for a link to a tutorial on heated pearls.

Challenges I participated in: Craft Us Crazy - Easter/ Spring, Delightful Challenges - Flowers, Lili of the Valley - Spring, The Rubber Cafe - Spring Flowers.

To play along in this week's Polkadoodles no printed background paper, simply make a project and post it to your blog or another on-line gallery and link it to the Polkadoodles Challenge Blog. Prizes are waiting to be won!
