Liquid Pearls and Cling Wrap Backgrounds by April Williams


Sparkle N Sprinkle is now carrying Liquid Pearls in so many delightful colors so here is a technique using them.  You can click here to see all the fabulous colors.


 



 


Supplies needed:

  1. Cling Wrap
  2. Liquid Pearls (Any color - sample used Daffodil)
  3. Dye Ink (Any color to compiment the Liquid Pearls)
  4. Sponge
  5. Heat Tool (opt.)
  6. White or Cream Cardstock
  7. Craft Sheet

 


 Take the bottle of Liquid Pearls and squeeze some onto the craft sheet. 



 


Wad up a piece of cling wrap and pounce it in the paint, then pounce it all over the card stock.  You can either let the paint air dry or heat it a little to speed up the drying time.  It dries pretty quickly on its own.


 

The next step is to take your ink pad — sample used green ink — and sponge ink all over the card stock until it is covered.  Take a tissue and rub off any excess ink.  That’s it! It makes a neat shimmery background.


 



Here are a few more backgrounds using different color combinations.  Have fun coming up with your own!

Watercolor Cling Wrap Technique by April Williams

When I saw this technique I just couldn't wait to try it! As you can see, once I started I couldn't stop.  I made three cards with these backgrounds! Each background ends up with it's own unique pattern.

Supplies:

  1. heavy weight watercolor paper 140lb.
  2. watercolor paint -- I used tubes of watercolor paint
  3. water spritzer
  4. cling wrap
  5. paint brush
  6. water in a dish to clean brush

First tear off some cling wrap, crinkle it up long ways and keep nearby. Spritz your watercolor paper with water and swipe several different colors of paint over the paper with your brush. I am a sloppy painter, so don't worry about how you are putting on the paint. You do want the paint to run and blend some, so have the paper pretty wet.

When the paper is painted, spritz it again with water to let the colors run more.

Now quickly put the cling wrap over the wet paper. I used my fingers to smoosh the cling wrap around. I then patted it down on the paper. Let the cling wrap stay on the paper until dry.

Peel off cling wrap when dry and you have a great textured background!

Here is another I did in earth tones.

I hope you have as much fun with this technique as I did. Experiment to see what you come up with! On my last card above, I stamped the Stained Glass Tree on one of the backgrounds, cut it out and adhered it to a background that didn't turn out very well. This technique seems to work better when the colors are very diluted.

Sparkle N Sprinkle supplies:

  1. Chickadees
  2. Bird of Paradise
  3. Stained Glass Tree
  4. Just for You
