I love my perfect pearls. Using them on dark card makes them shaine all the more. I have never used them with a glitter pen though. Will have to try this. Very pretty card.

This is a great technique to achieve a stained glass effect, as Gina said. Very elegant results.

Thank you, Gina, for reminding me of the Perfect Pearls powders. I have some and now will

get them out and create a card.

This is gorgeous Gina..I have never used pearl X , so this was an excellent tutorial.

They will Patti,

I just think you need to set it with a fixative because Pearl-Ex doesn't have the binding agent. You will still get stunning results!

Thanks Gina for showing us this . I bought some pearl X (is this the same type of product) ? via the internet and thought it was embossing power and i did not know what to do with it thanks i will have to try and see if those will work LOL...

This is a wonderful technique. I will surely be using it in the future. Thanks

Thanks for sharing this technique, Gina. Looks to me like 'wet' embossing instead of the regular heat embossing? So, I think this technique is do-able. A little messy though with the powder. So, I need to work with the fan off or they'll fly all over the place! lol ~ xox
