The technique taught next was SO elegant looking. The stamp is inked with Versamark on black cardstock. In the class they used Perfect Pearls but I only had Pearl-Ex powders. I applied them like instructed by pounding them on with a soft brush and then using the brush to dust away the excess. Clear detail embossing powder still sticks over this and it is heated to melt it.
For the first card I used the brocade stamp and selected Pearl-Ex in interference blue/green and interference green/yellow. I layered with yellow and green shimmer cardstock and black. These were wrapped with ribbon and cord. three gold Dazzles words were added on the right.
For my second attempt I stamped with four doilies and used duo-gold Pearl-Ex. A doodle-bordered strip and stamped diecut circle break up the mass of laciness. I had already watercolored a scrolled butterfly and fussy cut it with a thin white border. Then I covered it with Versamark ink and embossed it with clear powder. This was repeated for a thicker glassy surface.
I used a yellow tone-on-tone background for a subtle border.
