I bought Liquid Pearls from my LSS a long time ago and it sat in the drawer. While making this card I was wanting to give it a shimmery, snow like look but I didn't think liquid applique would work as I thought it would screw up his little nose. So I gave liqiud pearls a try. I love how it turned out. It looks bumpy, yet smooth, yet shimmery. Just like a real snowman.
I will be honest and say that I don't know if I like the beads, but it's all good! :)
I stamped the main image in red and then added the liquid pearls to the snowman everywhere but the nose. I colored the nose in orange and then sponged the edges with red. I then paper pieced th scarf with DSP and added black beads to the eyes, nose and buttons. I added the beads while the pearls was still wet so it would act like a glue for the beads. I matted on kiwi next. The baja layer was stamped with snowflakes using baja ink and then I used the 1/4 inch circle punch to make a ticket edge and sponged the edges with baja ink.. I added the buttons and main image layers next (using pop dots). The brown DSP layer was sponged around the edges with chocolate ink. The red DSP was sponged with red ink, too. The card base was sponged around the edges with kiwi ink. I added all the layers and ribbon to the card base and then stamped the sentiment in chocolate ink. What do you think? How do you like the pearls on the snowman?
