Excellent idea to scan your existing rhinestone etc. flourishes to use as templates for future flourishes created with Liquid Pearls.
Easy handmade pearl flourishes - "I simply use a flourish stamp and a watermark ink pad, stamp the design and then use it as a guide to follow along with pearl paint. Ranger liquid pearls or usually any fabric paint will work - just test the brand on a scrap to ensure it doesn't bleed, I have heard some brands can (but it has never happened to me before). You can also gently tap the underside of the paper to flatten the paint dots if you want rounded "pearls" without peaks." - bjl
Frugality in crafting ... homemade embossing ink. Who would have thought it was a mixture of Vaseline, cooking oil and alcohol! One reviewer said this: "I find glycerin works really well and you don't get the oily bleed that can happen with oil and petroleum jelly. You can add watercolour paint or food colouring if you want to tint it. Works like a charm."
