The gilding flakes won this round - there wasn't really enough coverage on this gorgeous Penny Black tree. I added three Stickles and two Liquid Pearls as well as some gems to it, so you can hardly tell! I added a couple of white layers as I wanted to keep the design very clean but the card needed a little something extra and I think the white layers worked well.
For the TLC555 - use Watercolor Powders. I used various colors of Brushos here. I first stamped the Hero Arts image with Versamark on the smoother side of watercolor paper and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I then sprinkled on two colors at a time, misted with water until I got the texture I wanted and heat set it. I then repeated that adding two more colors and heat set. I heat set in between so I didn't get mud.
