Technique Tuesday - Perfect Pearls With Black Card Stock

Good morning!
I'm stripping/patching drywall/painting/papering my bathroom today, with the help of my dear friend, Sylvia.  I'm much rather be stamping/scrapbooking on my day off, but, alas, the bathroom can no longer be neglected!  I know I'll be thrilled when it's finished, so I'm keeping that goal in mind. 

Needing something quick for today's Technique Tuesday, I'm "borrowing" a technique from an old, old post on this blog.  It is a great technique for your black card stock, and since it has to do with black card stock, I thought it appropriate for this series, and worth repeating.  The full post with directions/tutorial is HERE

Next week is another fun technique with black card stock (which can actually be used with any color card stock, but I find it particularly stunning on black).

I love the bold, pearlized look of the Perfect Pearls with the contrast of the black card stock.  It's striking and elegant, and a touch glitzy!  Fun technique.  You can get the directions on my previous post HERE .

OK, off to work in my bathroom!



  1. This is really cool, Lynda! I'll have to give it a try! So pretty!

  2. I love that butterfly card Lynda! It's gorgeous!
