I recently made this card using a product called Perfect Pearls. It's a fine powder that has a metallic shine to it. It comes in different colors but I used white on this card.
I think it's very dramatic and stunning. Here's the process. This technique works best with layering stamps. By that I mean the stamps are grouped together as one flower but you stamp each layer individually. This allows the flower to look more realistic. I started with Island Indigo card stock and stamped the solid flower first with Versamark ink. It's that sticky clear ink that I also use for heat embossing. Then I sprinkled on the Perfect Pearls.
This photo is the smaller supporting flowers in the final card. You can already see the beautiful shine on this layer. Then I brushed off all the powder and was left with the stamped flower.
Next I chose the second layer of the flower design and again used Versamark ink. When you lift up the stamp, some of the pearl powder also lifts, leaving you with a beautiful detailed design.
I do not have the dies for this stamp set so I hand cut all the flowers, leaves and tiny berries. There are 11 different elements on this card. I used a 3D embossing folder to create the white panel under the flowers. Then I began to attach the flowers and leaves in a pleasing design. Here's a close up of the largest flower.
I finished off the card with a modern sentiment strip that I heat embossed with white powder.
