I was inspired to pull out the pearl-ex powders by Autumn at Sew Paper Paint, and to stamp and emboss onto vellum by Suchi at Suchi's Cardstock. Both techniques I have not used in a while. Suchi coloured her stamping on vellum, but I ended up not doing that, other than on the body of the moth.
I started by stamping a panel with the silk moth image (a now discontinued stamp) in Versamark, and then brushed pink pearl-ex over it. To seal the colour onto the card I gave it a quick spray of hair spray - it worked a treat.
I started using the other side of this paper, but when I turned it over I decided to use this side with it's softer colours and subtle images.
The sentiment was stamped and white embossed on a snippet of the same card as the base, and cut into a banner - this was mounted over some loosely looped gold thread, and raised with some foam dots in the centre.
This is a close up of the silk moth image - I coloured the body with a dark brown marker on the back of the vellum, and then adhered the fussy cut image with some foam dots under the coloured body.
A few rhinestones finished the card.
