I had a little fun. I rubbed Versamark ink over the pearl elements and embossed them with brand new Fran•tage Aged Ivory Embossing Enamel. The result was a gorgeous pearly sheen with hints of gold and an antique finish. Just in case you are wondering if I inked, embossed, and placed each individual pearl from the flourish...no, I did not. I'm too lazy for that. The whole thing was left intact on the carrier sheet while I performed my Fran•tage magic. When cool, I carefully picked the entire flourish off the carrier in one piece and placed it on my card. Yep. I'm pretty happy with it.
