Using Perfect Pearls and Metal Flakes on Coated Card

This was my final sample for the recent Clarity one day special on Hochanda.  The shows should still be available on catch up if you wish to see the demos by Lou Withers (Saturday 11th 6pm/8pm and Sunday 12th 9am/1pm and 5pm).  For a change, I worked on black coated A5 card.
Add an Elegant Ladies inner stencil to a piece of A5 coated black card. Lay the Moroccan Lattice stencil over the top.
Press a Versamark ink pad through the stencil until the card is covered and remove the geo stencil. Brush Perfect Pearls over the ink in Forever Blue, Forever Red, Forever Violet and Green Patina. Buff up the card and remove the elegant lady inner.
Line up the Elegant Ladies 2 stencil outer over the figure and carefully add Pentart Metal Leaf Glue through the aperture with a small brush. This remains tacky until coated with metal flakes or another medium such as mica powders.  I added Variegated Copper metal flakes and buffed off the excess.
Trim card to 19cm x 13.8cm and add to a 20cm x 14.8cm white card blank.
Add three sentiments from the Small Talk Occasions sticker book to complete an alternative birthday card.

Like this one. I do enjoy using gilding flakes. I like the idea of using the two stencils with different mediums. X
