Add shimmer to your stamped image with Perfect Pearls.
- Perfect Medium, Versamark™ or other embossing ink
- Perfect Pearls® (Forever Green), or Pearl-Ex™
- Small and wider Brush, or Swiffer® cloth
Ink your image with Perfect Medium™.
Stamp image on cardstock.
You won't see the image.
Start brushing Perfect Pearls over your image with a thin brush.
Continue until you covered the entire image with Perfect Pearls.
Use your wider brush to brush off the excess powder from your image.
You can also swipe a Swiffers Cloth carefully over the image to pick up the extra powder.
To set the powder spray with fine water mist.
When using Pearl-Ex for this technique, you will have to set them with an Acrylic Sealer instead of water.
Finish your card.
Try the same technique on dark cardstock for a more dramatic look.
Interference colors are fun. The powder looks different on light then on dark cardstock.
