Tuesday Morning Sketches #157

A quick second post for today, I thought I would try a new challenge Tuesday Morning Sketches.
I could not quite get a photo I was happy with, seems to be the theme this week :). I think it is all the background black. I wanted to show off my new watercolor pearlescents, they add wonderful color an sparkle.

I used three layers of cardstock, then ran it through my cuttlebug with an embossing folder. I stamped the image and heat embossed with silver then coloured with red and green pearlescents. I finished with some silver pearls.

Supplies: Natural white, rust, silver and black cardstock, Hero Arts - Large Blossom,  Close to my Heart - Pearls, embossing folder, silver embossing powder.

The pearlescents was purchased at Ever After Scrapbook in Kelowna, I saw the idea for this card there. Please check the blog for the original card.
