I love stamping in VersaMark & covering w PearlEx & hadn't thought to do it for a long time. I used the envelope bg to give some texture before stamping the lion. I find it hard to photograph when there's shimmer, but hopefully you can get an idea of the look.

PearlEx! I have yet to master that- all 24 bottles of it! (yes, I bought it thinking, "someday"...) Lol! Your work is incredibly masculine here. Love it!

This is fantastic - such a great masculine card! The Pearl Ex sets off your image perfectly.
I love working with it: I just finished 75 wedding invitations for my niece; they were done on ivory linen-textured cardstock. I stamped a magnolia blossom with Versamark on top of the wording and went over the blossom with Biscotti Pearl Ex. Very subtle, but very elegant effect.
