Monochrome with Pearl Powders

So we're into August and its my turn, Emma (aka The Sparkly Fairy) to share with you my creation. The WOW DT challenge this month is to create a monochrome project using the Pearl Powders.

These are quite magical! In the pot they are simply white powder, but if you look at the swatch chart I made, you will see how they turn into the most fantastic colours. The colours can also be altered by using different coloured inks for stamping the image.

To make the above card I used the Silver Pearl powder which again looks completely white in the pot. I stamped the dandelions from the Make A Wish Stamp set and embossed with the powder. I then stamped the butterflies from the same set, embossed them and cut them out. This gives them a 3D look. I stamped and embossed the Believe sentiment from the Journalling set of stamps. I cut out the design with deckle scissors and dipped the edges into the powder.  Finally I put the card through an embossing folder to give extra texture.

Don't forget to come along and join us in the challenge for a chance to win 12 WOW Embossing Powders of your choice!

Shopping List:


  1. A beautiful card, and a really helpful colour chart :)

I have a bunch of empty CD cases that I had almost thrown out but thankfully I hadn't as they turned out to be the perfect solution! The part that holds the CD easily popped out so I could then position my different stamp sets within them.

I found an old wooden CD box but it had no lid and as all clear acrylic stamps are best stored out of the light, I decided I would make a box lid for it... not just a plain lid though... a Wow Embossed box lid!

Here are brief instructions on how to make it:


Using pearl silver card, I created a square to the size that I needed (145mm) and added 30mm wide rectangles around the square adding in some t…
