Perfect Pearls Shimmer

This card was inspired by a tutorial by Jennifer McGuire for Pearlized  Stamp Layering with Altenew stamps.  I used the small rose from AlteNew's Vintage Flower set.  I have found this to be a very difficult stampset to work with, so was pleased when it turned out the way it did.   The Perfect Pearls are a Ranger product and I used the basic white pearl powder.  The paper and ink is Dapper Denim by SU, and Versamark and ribbons and Posca White pen finish the card.  The technique is difficult, and it is important to remove any powder that gets "outside" the versamark when you stamp the first layer, and then to apply a fixative when it is complete.  The matte was created with the  Dapper Denim ink sponged through a Tim Holtz stencil "Speckles" in the MI-THS-504 set.  The finished shimmer is gorgeous, but does not show up well in the photograph. The Thank you is from Fancy Sentiments stampset by Just Rite Stamps.
