Throwback Thursday - The Secret of Genius & Perfect Pearls

It's Suzanne here today with another beautiful card from the archives.  This is by Design Team Alumni Monica Black and was part of an online class she taught at Cyberstampers in 2007.  Although I no longer carry the butterfly peel-offs (there are some fishies!), there are still lots of Perfect Pearls in stock. And for the calligraphers in the crowd, you can letter with Perfect Pearls.

Supplies: (click the link to go to the website)

  1. Mix Perfect Pearls with water to create a paint.
  2. Spritz Perfect Ink Refresher on dark cardstock until wet. Rub in with paper towel.
  3. Paint long squiggles on the paper, then spritz with more Ink Refresher.
  4. Tilt and move the paper to mix the paint. (I found that cheap black cardstock didn't work well. I finally tried this on a piece of purple Bazzill and that worked well)
  5. Finding the right mix of Perfect Pearls and water was also a tricky thing. Just mix up small batches and find what works best.
  6. Once I had a piece I was happy with I trimmed it to fit a light purple card.
  7. Stamp saying onto scrap of light purple Bazzill with Versamark and emboss with Holographic embossing powder
  8. Trim with decorative scissors.
  9. Adhere to card with glue.
  10. Attach Butterfly outline stickers as shown


  1. I'll have to try mixing the Perfect Pearls with water, that is a very pretty look. Thanks for the idea & teaching me something new.

  2. What a beautiful card!! I love the butterflies and have some in my stash so I am going to give this a try! Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. Thank-you for the motivation to haul out those Perfect Pearls, because they really are just perfect for so many techniques.

  4. That's one beauty of a card! Love Perfect Pearls, looking forward to trying this technique.

  5. Beautiful card. Love this technique
