Happy Monday, Friends! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Today I’m sharing a card project that I made for the Creativations (CHA) show in January for the Ranger Ink booth featuring their artsy new Letter It collection.
If you haven’t checked out the Letter It collection yet, you should take a peek at all the fun products available in the line. For my card here, I focused on stamps and embossing ink, and seeing how many ways I could use the beautiful metallic gold Perfect Pearls powder. According to the descriptive information, these powders are specially developed with a built in resin, and are easy to use wet or dry. So I tried it out both ways.
One of the fun things you can do with Perfect Pearls powders is to combine them with water and a water brush or paintbrush for painted pearlescent watercolor effects. And that’s what I did here with the Flutter butterfly background panel. I used a mix of Distress Inks and gorgeous Sunflower Sparkle powder to add color to the butterflies, which were stamped in clear embossing powder onto Letter It Ivory Cardstock.
The bold sentiment image is from the Letter It Thank You stamp set, which was also stamped with embossing ink and brushed with the gold powder. The edges of the black panel were pressed into the ink and brushed with powder to match. And then for a dry technique, I simply brushed powder onto some ivory photo corners to tie everything together.
I do love the Letter It product line, and am looking forward to playing with it more. And if any of you are interested in trying it out, be sure to check out the awesome sale at Scrapbook.com right now on all Ranger products! Woo Hoo!
