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.
Here are the HLS products I used for my cards
I hope to see you over at the challenge blog with your creations :)
Thanks for popping by xx
