HLS March CAS Challenge

Hi everyone! I hope you are up for a challenge over at Happy Little Stampers.

This one was a bit of a challenge for me as it isn't one of my 'go to' techniques but it was still fun to learn.

I made this card so long ago while I was working out this technique that I nearly can't remember how I did it!! Isn't that terrible, lol!

Because I didn't have the 'correct' materials that are shown in the Faux Mother of Pearl tutorials over on the challenge blog, I had to improvise.

Anywho....  For both of my cards I am pretty sure I used Brushos smooshed into my watercolour paper. Then I used some perfect pearls misted with a bit of water and my scrunched up cling wrap to add the 'mother of pearl'. 

As I said, not the 'traditional' looking end result but I really like how it all turned out.
