P is for Poppin' Pearls

P is for Poppin' Pearls. I found a great tutorial for this technique on the Split Coast Stampers Resources page.
Stamp image with VersaMark or other clear embossing ink. I'm using a light shimmering green card stock.
While the ink is still moist, brush Perfect Pearls over the image with a thin dry brush. I used Forever Violet. You could use different colors of Perfect Pearls offer different parts of the image.
Use a wider dry brush to brush off the excess powder.
Set the pearls powder with a fine water mist spray.
It's hard to see with my camera and light, but the Perfect Pearls have a shimmering color that "pops" off the page in the light.
