I learned this technique at Ranger U and Tim referred to it as Pearl Glaze.
I used a very, very small amount of Adirondack Dabber paints. You can use any color (or colors) for this technique, but the Adirondack Pearl is required. My color of choice for this project is Red Pepper. I cut a small piece of Cut-N-Dry foam as well, and am working on a non-stick craft sheet.
OK this next step is similar to mixing the batter for pancakes - you don't want to mix it completely, just barely incorporate the colors. Your best bet is to swipe the Cut-N-Dry foam into the paints then go at the cardstock.
Go ahead and swipe the paints onto a piece of white cardstock until covered.
Using direct-to-paper technique (hold the ink pad in your hand and repeatedly swipe directly to the cardstock) I first used Distress Antique Linen ink...
...followed by Distress Scattered Straw. Scattered Straw ink is useful anytime you need to 'warm up' the colors in a project.
I tore a few strips from this sheet and inked with Distress Walnut Stain using an ink applicator tool. One is for the outside of the card and one is for the card interior.
Finished card. The balance of the patterned paper was used as the focal point, matted with black cardstock. I added some Tim Word Sticks, Numerals, and Type Charms. The 'love' from the Word Sticks was filled in using my finger and a bit of Adirondack Red Pepper ink, allow to dry for about twenty seconds then swipe the charm with a clean, dry cloth.
