Faux mother of pearl…


I saw a tutorial on the Slitcoaststampers website for the faux mother of pearl technique which was totally new to me.  The tutorial was really easy to follow and I was so pleased with the results.  It gave a very luxurious, expensive feel to the background paper I made.   

You can just about see how the shimmer mist paint makes the background shiny …

I made a full A4 size sheet using whisper white cardstock and so had plenty to make several cards…


I used my favourite Nature Walk stamp set, distressed the edges by sponging with crumb cake ink and used the In Stitches stamp to stamp a stitching line up the sides of the card which I think looks just like a row of little bird footprints!  Love it! 


Stampin Up supplies used:

Cardstock: whisper white, basic black, very vanilla, crumb cake; Inks: basic gray, crumb cake, black stazon, pink pirouette, champagne mist shimmer paint, bashful blue, certainly celery, so saffron, perfect plum; Stamp sets: in stitches, nature walk, sweet swirls, sincere salutations, occasional quotes (level 3 hostess set); Punches: decorative label; Accessories: blender pen, stampin’ dimensionals, glue dots, whisper white organza ribbon, basic pearls, pretty in pink taffeta ribbon.
