YouTube Tuesday Perfect Pearls on Black Glossy Card.

Hello there,
Thanks for stopping by.
Welcome to 
Here’s a very simple How-to use Perfect Pearls (Mica Powders) with a Detail Claritystamp and preserve the detail.
I have chosen our very delicate, new lacey Swallows
to show you how to preserve the detail when working with metallic powders on glossy card.
There are 2 sets of Mica powders on our website:
and Set 2
I went with three colours from the first set.

Items Used:
Talcum Powder
Soft Paint Brush
much love,

  1. Hi Barbara thank you for the video of this technique, theses stamps are lovely and look gorgeous in the perfect pearls. My friend Jackie and I were talking about them the other day so I will make sure she watches this (the perfect pearls!). I have tried this with another mica powder but the result looks much sharper with these ones. Have a great day with hopefully some rest!
    Take care. Love Diane xxxx

  2. Good morning,
    Very cool,technique, I always love you tube Tuesday, it is just like you are here with me giving me a little lesson. Best to,you on this lovely day… Still dRk in Texas. Love this card idea. Thanks

  3. Great tutorial and you make it look so simple and foolproof. This technique always looks so elegant when you want something a little more restrained than embossing. I hope you get a chance to recover from your hectic sounding weekend.

  4. Perfect pearls look beautiful on black card, need to try this out for sure. Blotting first will help me with slipping on the shiny surface as this always bugs me when I do it! No amount of being careful and not pressing too hard ever seems to help. More practice needed. XX

  5. Hallo liebe Barbara,
    ich bin begeistert wie genial du das Perfect Pearls auf der schwarzen Karte zum Einsatz gebracht hast.
    Der Effekt sieht wunderschön aus. Die Filigranität der Vögel bleibt erhalten und das gefällt mir ganz besonders gut.
    Vielen Dank für das tolle Video. Das ist wieder eine geniale Inspiration für mich.
    Ganz liebe Grüße Silvi

  6. Hi Barb,
    Fabulous! Thanks for the video tutorial. I have tried mica powder before without success I must add, but having watched the video today I think it might be because I haven't dusted with talc first. Needless to say, I will be giving this a go. Thanks again, love Alison xx

  7. Hi Barbara, I love YouTube Tuesday as I feel you are here with me guiding me along the way. Love it. Mica looks lovely especially on the black.
    Kep em coming x
    Much love
    Kim xx

  8. Thank goodness for talcum powder – Until I saw you doing a demo a year or so ago I never thought to use talc and bingo no more stray bits or smudges not only on black card but acetate etc.
    Your hints and tips are fab , as always a big thank-you for your generosity in sharing your ideas and techniques with us so freely and clearly xxx

  9. Thanks for covering this technique. Although I have tried micas before I had disaterous results, even the cat ended up covered! I am definately going to try them again after watching this. I do love how they look on the black card – even my disasterous ones!

  10. i can't believe i missed it yesterday!
    your perfect pearls images on black card always look so pristine. and if i start to buff no matter how lightly i do it they always smudge. how do you do it? make it look so simple? hugs xx
