Make It Monday #113: Perfect Pearls

Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and Perfect Pearls or some sort of metallic pigment powder.

I have had a package of Pearl Ex for YEARS. I rarely use it but I have always loved it. I guess I just get lazy and use patterned paper I buy and don't make my own, unless it is a challenge.

I used  Enchanted Evening for my panel. I stamped it with Background Basics: Botanicals using VersaMark ink. I used 3 colors of powder for more interest. You can sort of see it! The picture where the card sits at an angle show it best.

I am sort of obsessed with Happiness in Bloom so I used it on this card. I had several flowers already stamped for some other cards so I used them. I tried to stamp one with the Pearl Ex as the shading. Let me tell you, it was not a pretty flower. It just came out kind of muddy. So... I used the color combo I know works, well!

Dawns Happy For You sentiment is inked in Berry Sorbet and stamped on the banner from Get a Handle die set.

Thank you for looking at my blog!


  1. Very pretty card. You need to use perfect pearls more often.

  2. Striking colors and those Happiness in Bloom stamps are beautiful, Susan!
