Handmade Pearl Flourishes

I had shared this technique on Ideas for Scrapbookers a while back but thought I would archive it here too. Here is a quick trick... use any flourish stamp and a watermark ink pad as a guide to follow along with pearl paint for an easy handmade bling flourish. Ranger liquid pearls or good quality fabric paint will work (the cheap stuff may bleed a little - test on a scrap first). I use the Inkadinkado Dot Flourishes set because the lines are thin and the watermark image is no wider than an adhesive strip on bought flourishes. You can GENTLY tap the back of the paper to flatten the paint dots if you want more rounded "pearls" without peaks. So fast and easy!
