Team Tuesdays with Susan: Foiling with Perfect Pearls and the MISTI

Hi,
I am up on the blog today with this sparkly card using foiling with Perfect Pearls based on a technique by Jennifer McGuire.




I used Jennifer McGuire's technique of lifting off Perfect Pearls pigment powder with Versamark. But I added a twist - and this is not a new twist by any means. I inked up a sheet of Neenah Desert Storm with Versamark and applied the Perfect Pearls.  I set the Perfect Pearls with water and left the paper to try for 24 hours in my MISTI - drying time may be less if you are in a very dry climate.

Once the paper was dry, I placed the stamp in my MISTI and applied a thin coating of Deco Arts transfer gel to the stamp and stamped it on to the paper. There is a video below showing the whole process start to finish.


 Once the transfer gel was dried, I ran the stamped image through my laminator with some gold foil and got this beautiful, distressed foiled background. I wish you could see this in person as it is so shimmery and gorgeous.

Thank you for stopping by!
Susan

  2. Thanks for showing us the technique. I have recently purchased some Perfect Pearls but I have not used it yet. Kind of scared but I will...one day. Videos like yours help :-)
