Delicate leaves

Today I was watching a video of Jennifer McGuire using Shimmer Powders and loved the effect she was achieving. I don't have any shimmer powders, but I do have some Brushos and some Mica powders, so I thought that I would combine the two to see if I could achieve a similar, shimmery effect. I rather like the delicacy of this one It's a couple of shakes of Green Perfect Pearls and Leaf Green Brusho, spritzed with water and allowed to dry. I didn't use any special watercolour paper, just some offcuts of card on the non textured side.
The branch die is by Alexandra Renke. I'm not sure of the sentiment die... it's very old. I cut a panel for it to rest on, from a pennant die, cutting part way from each end, to make a rectangle just long enough to accommodate the letters.
