tutorial - dimensional pearl painting-technostamper sketch

Todays tutorial uses Mary Jo's sketch for this week:

And here is my card - i used a brand spankin' new Peachy Keen stamp that just arrived - too cute huh?!?!? sorry about the glare BUT it does show you how truly shimmery these paints are!

Here is a closer view - notice the black detail lines show easily through the paint with no special effort!

Gather supplies - cardstock cut to size you need, stamps, ink pad, paint brush, bowl of water for rinsing, dimensional pearls.

Stamp your images. squirt out a little of each of the color paints you will be using - i do EVERYTHING on the fabulous Ranger craft sheet so i just squirt them right on the sheet. simply paint in your images with a paint brush - the detail lines of your stamp will easily show through the transparent paints:

This example used the Sketch Challenge over on SCS:

And the card

Patterned paper is from the DCWV nana's nursery stack i just got - OH SO CUTE - i cute my squares and mats on the cricut. i added the lines and dots with more dimensional paints and cut the edge with the martha stewart scallop border punch.

have FUN!!
