This is just like #12 but in case you don't have liquid pearls you can also use perfect pearl powders!

You will send one partner one ATC which you make using the following steps. Some steps require specific TH (Ranger? :-P) material to be used and are in bold text so be sure you have them!

1 Grab one solid black ATC blank that will stand up to getting wet..

2 Choose one of your favorite stamp(s) that you like to color but has more thick lines than thin.

3 Use clear embossing ink to stamp the image(s) onto the ATC.

4 Immediately cover in black embossing powder and heat to melt the powder. This could of course be done using black soot embossing powder if you have it! Just make sure you fully set the powder and wipe away the release crystals.

~It is perhaps easiest to use his water brush marker, or any water brush marker. But you could probably get away with a cup of clean water and different sized paintbrushes, you'll just need to dip your brush in the cup often.~

5 Prime your water brush by lightly squeezing and swipe on your mat to ensure good water flow.

6 Choose any color of Ranger Perfect Pearls that you want to use on your image and lightly dip the end of the paintbrush in to the container, in my experience a little goes a LONG way.

7 Paint your image with your magical paint! Make sure it is watery enough that the embossing is resisting your paint, but thick enough that you're not losing the color. When needed blot very lightly with a slightly damp cloth or q-tip to reveal the embossing if it gets covered up.

8 Repeat steps 5-7 with as many colors of Ranger Perfect Pearls as you'd like until your entire ATC is painted

9 Let air dry.

10 Attach a sturdy backing to your ATCs which includes at least the ATC title, your username, and date. Send your ATC to your partner.

I hope to host more of these but need to know what TH products everyone owns, so please comment on this thread.

If you have any questions, sending a pm is the quickest way to reach me. I do try to check for comments on my swaps but sometimes I am not timely :-/

If there any issues with your partner following steps please inform @choke before rating down. I think it is common sense that there is always a chance that the steps were misinterpreted so some graciousness should be allowed here.

As always I will angel if you are flaked on but only if you have rated your partner a 1.
