The Pearl Ex looks fabulous! Beautiful colours!

Beautiful cards using mica powders, Christine. I have used both Heat & Stick (SU!) and Sticky Powder (Ranger). I find the Sticky powder is a bit smoother, but they both work great with mica powders. If you lightly heat set after your mica powders are added, that ensures the powders are set well. xx

Two really beautiful shimmery cards Christine, and with one of my favourite images..the egret, and then the delightful butterfly background and added coordinating butterfly. The mica always looks spectacular on black card. x

Both cards are remarkable with the combined effect of the mica powders and the stamps. Every time you use Magenta I swoon over the stamps and have to go looking. I love way too many things for my own good!

I'd never think to do something like this but WOW, what a fabulous effect! Love all the shimmer on these with the mica powders. I was thrilled to see a notification came into my email! Maybe this is fixed after all!

I love these cards. I bought mica powders and had no idea what to do with them after I got them. I need to start using the stuff I buy!

Both cards are fantastic, Christine! The shine of the mica powder on black is so beautiful and I love the colors you used. I think I have the powders and Heat and Stick but I haven't used them for a long, long time. Thanks for your inspiration!
