Faux Crystal Flourish

This is a great way to make you own crystal flourishes & extend the ones that you have purchased! I have used Ranger Liquid Pearls, but you may also use Stickles & Puffy Paints.
Supplies:
*Blingy flourish still attached to clear/acrylic backing
*Liquid Pearls
*Clear Craft Plastic sheets
*Scanner or printer w/scanner

*Place the flourish face down on the scanner.
*Using the "copy" option, make a black & white copy of the flourish. You can copy more than 1 flourish at a time!
* Next place clear sheet of plastic over copied image & dot with Liquid Pearls.

* Try using more than 1 color!




*Trim around flourish & place on your project! You will not be able to see the plastic the flourish is on once it is placed in a photo album with a protective sheet!!

Thanks my friends for taking a look!! Have fun :D

Interesting idea! I use Tulips 3-D Fashion paint for dots like this though, it is available at Micheals and Walmart so it is easier to find and they have a pearl kind.
