Liquid Pearls & Stencils


Sometimes I think I spend more time just staring at my crafty stash, pondering, stroking, shuffling, ooohing n' arrring over the 'pwetty' colours than actually using it.
So today I thought I'd break out the Liquid Pearls and stencils and have a play about.



I used a Crafters Workshop stencil called 'Cell Theory' and initially started by putting small blobs of the Liquid Pearl on a piece of scrap card before applying to my stencil with a spatula. Then I decided to cut out the middle man and ended up just squirting it straight on to the stencil. 


The result was amazing! The only thing is, when I lifted the stencil some of the paper tore (Grrrr) & I'm not sure if it's because of the card used (regular stamping card) or I didn't work fast enough


So, I tried again, same card but worked faster and the result was a lot better but still the odd tear.


Not wanting to give up, I tried one more time, different colours and using an MFT stencil, again same card but even faster and the result was perfect.
I'll try another day with a glossy card to see if I can create something perfect and not at break-neck speed and report back.
Let me know if you've tried this technique before.
