B is for Brayered Pearl Backgrounds

Another brayered technique in the little booklet Trish B gave me was Brayered Pearl Background, very luscious, had to give it a try.
First make a mixture of Perfect Pearls and water (or if using PearlEx powder, add some gum arabic). Stipple this mixture on to glossy card stock.
Heat set, here I let the water move around making different designs of the Perfect Pearls.
Brayer over the top of the card with rainbow dye ink.
Did another with a mixture of gold and bronze Perfect Pearls.
This one has gold and yellow Perfect Pearls and a different rainbow pad.
Used a thick mixture of regular and purple Perfect Pearls.
Finally, grabbed a large sheet of glossy card stock and stippled on all the left over Perfect Pearl mixtures, heat set and brayered over.
I love having an assortment of backgrounds on hand.
