Stretch Your Stamps 2 - Day 2 (Card 2)

Oh yes, you read right, I am still on Day 2 even though it is around Day 8 at the moment, so I have some catching up to do.  They are sharing so many neat techniques that I want to try them all but time is the issue!

However, Jennifer McGuire shared a technique using Perfect Pearls and Versamark and it reminded me that I had a few Perfect Pearls in my drawer.  So this is what I made:

Paper: cardstock (PTI)
Ink: HA Latte Chalk Ink; HA Pool Mid-Tone shadow ink
Stamps: Everyday Sayings; Floral Brocade & L'oiseau (all Hero Arts)
Other: Perfect Pearls (Forever Blue; Bronze) by Ranger

I think that my Versamark is perhaps almost running on empty and that's why you see just very thin layering (sticking) of the Perfect Pearls pigment powder but  I love that it created a sort of softness to the card.  I hope you like it too.

Have a fabulous day!
