Pearly tiles

The Saturday Workout challenge is to use UTEE in some way.

I don't have any, so I used Amazing Glaze as a substitute. Once I had embossed 3 layers I pressed a stamp into the melted powder. I then brushed over the tiles with the pearl powders. I used the latter again over versamark on the black paper, and also over versamark on a green brad, which I sealed with hairspray.

Wow, Ros!!! Such a gorgeous card. I don't know what the stuff you used as a substitute was but I want some. The iridescent colors just glow on this card. So beautiful.

Those stamps and pearly powders show beautifully on the black card and the EI stamp lends itself perfectly to the triple embossing. Love the design of the card too.
