The challenge is to use Pearl Ex and hairspray on the card. I first stamped with VersaMark and used a paint brush to add color with Pearl Ex. Once I had that all done I sprayed with the hairspray mixture, while it dried I cut my other cardstocks assembled the top two layers added ribbon gems and completed with the last layers. Very easy to do! I really like the added hairspray and had never done that before, only did the Pearl Ex once before when I borrowed a set…now I have my own, Linda sent me some and I sent her B G papers. Cool exchange!
The ribbon on this card matches much better than the scan shows it.

Very pretty Roxi! Never tried using Pearl Ex. May just break down and buy some and try it. Will have to lock up my 4 legged stamping buddy (one in my avatar) in another room tho. She's already knocked a jar of fine EP off the table once. That was a pain to clean up. I heard Pearl Ex is even worse.
