Tim Holtz has introduced another amazing technique that displays how Perfect Pearls and Distress Inks make a "Perfect" pair!
The two work well together because Perfect Pearls are pigment powders with a built in binder that will stick to anything that is wet - and Distress Inks stay wet a little longer than other inks in order to do techniques such as this, or even embossing!
The video is HERE and is called "Perfect Distress". The effect is just amazing. It makes a stamped image pearlized or shiny on top and the ink underneath moves around it to form a stunning outline of the image. I am sure you guys will have as much fun playing with this technique as I did.
The "Journey awakens the Soul" tag shown here has White Perfect Pearls on top of Black Soot Distress Ink. It is a little hard to see in this picture, but you can see it better in the video.
