One of the many uses of Pearl EX

For those of you who are unfamiliar with Pearl Ex. Pearl ex is a shimmery mica powder that is added to various mediums or by itself using a sticky medium to "hold" the powder. Click on my post title for a list of Pearl Ex tips and techniques.

For those familiar with Pearl Ex, have you ever tried to apply Pearl Ex to dark cardstock but find that the color don't seem to stand out as much as you'd like? To solve this problem, rubber stamp your image using white pigment ink as opposed to Versamark or embossing ink, apply the Pearl Ex color preference as you normally would and brush off the extra powder. Whala! You end up with a very vibrant shimmery color that clearly stands out.

The card below was created using this technique.
