Mama Elephant Stamp Highlight: Filigree

Good everyone!  Today is the last of the Mama Elephant May release highlights and this one is to die for!  Today the whole DT is showcasing the set Filigree (It's available on the site NOW!)  



I love the look of this modern doily!  And the lovely petite sentiments fit just inside of the doily:)   To really get the most of the delicate design, I stamped the doily with Versamark watermark/embossing ink and then dusted it with Ranger Perfect Pearls.  If you're not familiar with them, Perfect Pearls are pigment powders that you apply with a soft paintbrush.  Pigment powders have been around awhile, but I've seen them around lately and I thought this would be the perfect project.  As you can see it gives a lovely glowy look!  I love the look of rich gold on purple.  For a little more bling, I used my gold Stickles to add glittery dots to the edges of the doily.  This gives it a little detail and a bit of texture.  


Thank you so much for stopping by all week to check out my projects and all the fun new stamps!  I hope that you get a chance to drop by the rest of the DT to see what fun they had with this beautiful set!

  7. This is utterly gorgeous, no idea you could emboss with PP--need to try that! Very reminiscent of Indian art in these colors with the gold dots. This would make the perfect card to give to someone for Diwali or a wedding!

  8. Gorgeous! How did you use the powders and not get it everywhere? I find it flies and leaves a sheen. Tips please!

  15. I had already decided that this stamp set was my favourite of this new release and your stunning card only strengthens my determination to add this stamp set to my collection sooner rather than later (if my piggie bank allows it). I love the rich and detailed gold on purple!

  18. Perfect combination. I immediately thought of this technique (was a MIM not too long ago) when I saw the fantastic detail on this stamp. Just love it.

  19. I LOVE your combination for this doily image. In fact, when I saw this, I ordered this set! This image conjures up the desire to get my crochet hooks back out...but then there'd be no time for stamping
