Perfect Pearls Background / Fall Theme Day 3

This is my second post for today. The break was too long, so now that things settled up a bit and the mojo is back, I’m making cards in a row,lol!

For this card I played a bit with the Perfect Pearls, the powders from Ranger, that I haven’t used in a looong time. Have to say that I enjoyed so much ”coloring” with these powders that I decided to keep them close to my work table so I can use them more often:))

The powders that I used are in gold and bronze, so I chose a dark brown cardstock to make them pop more. For these powders you need a sticky ink so I stamped my background with the Versamark ink. Next I poured the powders on top, trying to make a mix of the colors and while I kept adding the powders I remembered that is best if you apply them with a brush, just picking the powder right from the container. Doing so, the mess is less and also you don’t get to waste too much of the powder.

Once I covered all the leaves, I cleaned the excess powder with a clean brush and also used a dry cloth. To fix the powders, you can spritz some water into the air and pass your paper right through or use hairspary that works just fine also.

To be honest, the hardest part for this card was figuring out where to place my sentiment. I wanted to go with the vellum and not cover the background too much, but I couldn’t find a way to adhere the vellum without the adhesive showing through. So in the end I die cut a label from the same brown cardstock and doing so the focus remained on the background. I gold embossed the greeting and added several sequins to finish my card.
