I created my palette - with Heirloom Gold, Pewter & Forever Violet (the 3 colours of perfect pearls I've currently got). To get a little more variety in colours, I also added Distress Dried Marigold re-inker & Crushed Olive stain, and Dylusions spray Bubblegum Pink & Fresh Lime to Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls - also Distress Tumbled Glass re-inker & Dylusions spray London Blue and Crushed Grape to Pewter Perfect Pearls. The stamp I used is one of Dyan Reaveley's Dylusions background stamps (background love - DYR34612) from Ranger.
As you can see below, the Perfect Pearls on the black (which I used for the finished tag) have a much more subtle effect than on the cream - I think to get these colours on black I will have to get myself some more Perfect Pearls! But I can see me using both colours of cardstock, depending on the finished result I'm looking for!

And finally I added a die cut flower & butterfly which I'd made using the riveted patchwork technique on p 57 of the same book...
