I stamped the "tulip trio" with versamark then colored it with chalk. I after coloring it, I thought the white was a little stark and wished I had used ivory. So, I grabbed the copper pearl ex and a stipple brush and thought I would do a little "bronzing" to darken it. I was sure I would smear the chalk. What I discovered was that the pearl ex kind of "set" the chalk and added highlights to the flowers. Overall, I liked the effect, but not necessarily the card. I'm putting it up anyway. Feel free to copy...ha ha!

Thanks for the idea and posting the card to go with it. It really helps to have something visual to "set" an idea in my mind ; ) BTW, I wouldn't mind getting a card like this - really. It has a shabby chic feel to it. (quit scoffing!)
