You Are Amazing Card

Happy Sunday. I meant to post yesterday, but life happens. So today’s challenge card is for the Simon Says Monday Challenge Show Us Your Metal.

SSS challenge

I’ve been wanting to try out the Faux Metallic Stamping technique from Jennifer McGuire and this challenge presented the perfect opportunity.

I randomly stamped the inside leaf image with VersaMark on SU! Lost Lagoon cardstock and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  Using the matching solid image, I then stamped on top of the outline images before applying white Perfect Pearls over the enitre piece.  I used a glitter cloth to buff off excess powder. The Perfect Pearls sticks to the VersaMark and gives it a beautiful metallic look.

Here’s a close up of the faux metallic stamped images. The sentiment You Are Amazing was heat embossed with white embossing powder on black cardstock.  Really easy technique.
