Easter Projects ~ No. 5


Sorry that I haven't posted the tutorial that I promised a couple of days ago, I've been busy and haven't quite finished taking the photos yet, but I should have that and an Easter Basket tutorial up within the next few days.

Today's post is an Easter card that also showcases the "Faux Mother of Pearl" technique

You can quite see the technique on the card above but if you look at the image below, you will see the shiny 'mother of Pearl' effect that is so gorgeous and so simple to do

Ooo, shiny!
I used "Shimmery White" cardstock, but you can do this effect on "Whisper White" too.    Tools for the job?  Well, apart from the cardstock you need some "Frost White Shimmer Paint", a non-porous surface and an old carrier bag ~ go on, admit it, your intrigued, so if you would like me to demonstrate this technique to you and a group of your friends, why don't you get in contact and arrange a Workshop with me, I promise you, you'll be amased how simple this is and you'll have fun too!

Take care... xx
