April 2013 Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

Hi ya, all! I am joining in on the Papertrey Ink April Blog Hop today! Here is the challenge for the blog hop.


The challenge is to design on an angle and I decided to combine the challenge with this week's Make It Monday #113 which is to use Perfect Pearls on your project(s).


I first stamped the v from Irresistibly Ikat set with VersaMark then brushed on Perfect Pearls in Perfect Pearl, Turquoise and Plum. The sentiment from the same stamp set is brushed with Perfect Pearl.


After brushing the excess powders off, I spritzed the piece with some water then dried it with a heat gun. I vaguely remember Mr. Tim Holtz has mentioned that water help sets the powder and it seemed to work. The piece is then mounted on a white card base.

That's all from me. You can find all the entries for the blog hop here and the details for Make It Monday #113 here! =)

Have a lovely day and thanks for stopping by!

Love that you used that technique with the tilt. I was wondering what would happen if you spritzed (I too remember Mr. Tim's chemistry lesson). TFS.
