Treats on Tuesday with Christine - La gâterie du mardi avec Christine

Hi everyone, this week I have some cards with Pearl-Ex Mica powders and these beautiful detailed stamps.

I'm not sure if you are all aware, Pearl-Ex Mica Powders need a binder to hold them to the substrate, when mixed with water the mica powders will wipe off when dry. The binder I used for these cards was Heat and Stick. I stamped the image using Versamark sprinkled Heat and Stick over it, then used the heat gun to melt it. Heat and stick stays tacky after heating and the Pearl-Ex binds to the it leaving a beautiful pearlized image.
On both cards I used two different colours of mica. These cards are really quick to make and have such a beautiful shine.
