Gold embossing and coloring with Perfect Pearls

Technique:

First, stamp image (butterfly) with VersaMark, sprinkle gold embossing powder over, then heat emboss. Let cool for a few minutes, then stipple your choice of Perfect Pearls (I used plain white pearl shimmer, and the pink to create an opal finish) over the butterfly. Brush off excess. Cut butterfly out.

I stamped a lacy border to the bottom of a piece of iridescent, speckled vellum, then heat set it. Attach to ivory cs. Attached all the layers to pink cardstock base.

Added ribbon and adhesive backed pearls. Stamped sentiment onto Spellbinders lacy oval nestie. Cut out larger oval from pink pp and mounted lacy oval to this. Applied pop dots to sentiment and to butterfly.

Stamped lacy borders inside the card.


Thank you for looking! Aloha, Rosy
