If you’ve seen any of my pages, you may have figured out I’m not much a technique-y scrapper. Simple is the name of the game for me, but that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate (read: be in awe of) the techniques others use on their projects. Prior to CHA this year, Ranger Ink asked some ultra-talented designers to participate in a Designer Challenge. The designers were asked to use mostly Ranger products to create a one-of-kind design, displayed in a 12×12 frame. The one caveat was that they all had to feature one secret ingredient–Perfect Pearls.
Perfect Pearls are luminous pearlized powders and spray mists. They come in a rainbow of colors, you can use them wet or dry, and they mix well with inks or paints for endless possibilities. These coordinated sets are great, but you can buy the colors individually too.
Anyway, I just thought you’d enjoy seeing some of the cool designs we were treated to at the show. They’ve inspired me to break out of my cardstock box. I’m posting a few of the designs, but you can follow links below that will take you to the Ranger blog posts where you’ll find all of the projects.
This clever design was by Claudine Hellmuth.
Jenni Bowlin simply enhanced her design with Perfect Pearls.
Jennifer McGuire’s blew me away. Simple, yet so clever.
Here’s a closeup where you can see each punched heart’s been dusted with Perfect Pearls.
Head over to Linda Cain’s blog to read about how she used Perfect Pearls in this show-stopper.
