Stash Party #9 - A Floral Thank You - Perfect Pearls

Hello, Crafty Makers!
My mojo is trying to work its way back.
In order to keep it going, I raided my stash again looking for products I have not used in years!  
Guess what I found:  Perfect Pearls™!
I wanted to make vellum flowers and I wanted to make an aperture card.  I was able to do both and incorporate the Perfect Pearls™   
To create my vellum flowers, I stamped the image onto a regular piece of vellum using VersaMark embossing ink and then heat embossed them using white embossing powder.  Using my mermaid brushes, I blended Distress Oxide Inks over the petals and the leaves.  I didn't have dies for these flowers so I fussy cut them.
I couldn't get the light right, but you can see the shimmer!
I created the "metallic" background using Ranger Distress Inks and Perfect Pearls.  I blended the inks on a piece of white card stock and then using a small paintbrush, I applied Perfect Pearls™ to the surface.  I used a microfiber cloth to wipe away the excess Perfect Pearls™.  The metallic finish is so pretty.

Pretty much any background die will work.  I love this bold geometric die. 

***The Heartfelt Creations™  floral stamps used in this project came out of my stash.  They are so old, I fear they may have been discontinued.  I no longer have the packaging for the die.  Perfect Pearls is a Ranger Product
