For my project, I wanted to go all sparkly and so I dug out my perfect pearls powders and worked some magic. First of all, I stamped a pattern on my white card base with Versamark ink which you normally use for embossing. With the ink still wet, I pounced on perfect pearls with a large, soft brush. If you do this, don’t paint on surface from side to side—instead move the brush up and down vertically. That will help you avoid smudging whatever you have stamped. The perfect pearls will stick to the Versamark ink.
While this works beautifully on a lightly colored card stock for subtle patterns, this technique is going to rock on black or dark colors. I used Versamark again and then blue powder for the bells, gold for the bow, and the standard Perfect Pearl for the sentiment.
