Stamping with Mica Powders- Perfect Pearls - "L is For Leaf"- Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers

Hello, Crafty Makers!
This is my second make for the current challenge over at
  The note card base and the top panel of this project were cut from the same 12"x12" paper.  The top panel was covered with VersaMark embossing ink and then covered with perfect pearls.  I used a small makeup brush to spread the mica evenly.  I arranged my stamps on my Tim Holtz Stamp Platform and applied VersaMark embossing ink.  I stamped the image, applied more ink, and then stamped again.
The embossing ink lifts away the mica powder and leaves a beautiful impression and your background has that fabulous sheen. I thought the textured paper added additional visual interest and helped ground my embellishments!

  1. So you used the stamping to actually lift the mica powder from the background? Cool technique, I've not heard of that before. The first card you shared with us at SOSS made me think of clearing the dust off my mica powders and playing with them again - now I definitely have to do it! Thanks for sharing and for inspiring me.

  2. Thanks, Jane! Jennifer's video explains the technique in detail. I love it and now want to see if it will work with my Pearlex!
