Hi Everyone! Welcome back to another Oldies technique. I pulled out my Pearl Ex powders to play with and here is the result. I have not used these in ages! I also have some Powdered Pearls that are similar to the Pearl Ex and used one of those too. I love the shimmer these powders give. I hope you enjoy this technique today.
Here are the supplies you will need:
Pearl Ex or Powdered Pearls ( I used a white, light green and light blue )
Versa Mark ink
dark card stock
small paint brush
tissue or soft cloth
First I took a background stamp and inked it up with Versa Mark ink. You can see I have used this stamp a lot! LOL!
Next I laid my card stock over the background stamp and rubbed my fingers over it to get a good impression. I do this a lot with my background stamps in order to let the ink soak in better and to give an even look.
Now start to add the different colors of powders to the background using the paint brush. The powders will stick to the ink. I just added color randomly. It looks real messy at this point.
Next take a tissue or soft cloth and wipe off the excess powder and you will have a wonderful, shimmery background!
This is so easy, but beautiful. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
