Welcome to the latest edition of Technique Thursday! One of the best parts of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator is receiving our monthly magazine chock full of ideas! The second I saw the April issue, I knew I would be keeping the Faux Mother of Pearl technique in the back of my mind to share with you the next chance I got!! So here we are, and you only need a few supplies to create this fun look:
- § Frost White Shimmer Paint
- § Glossy White Card Stock
- § Classic Ink of your choice
- § Stamping Sponges or Brayer
- § Plastic Wrap
- § Plastic tray to pour paint onto
Step 1: Pour a dime-sized drop of Frost White Shimmer Paint onto a plastic tray of some sort.
Step 2: Scrunch up a piece of plastic wrap, and dip it into the Shimmer Paint. *Tip: You may want to dab the paint off a bit onto the edge of the tray or grid paper so that it's not too gloppy when you start applying it to your Glossy White card stock.
Step 3: Dab paint coated plastic wrap onto Glossy White card stock randomly, being sure to leave some white space as shown.
Step 4: Let dry.
Step 5: Apply classic ink color of your choice with either Stamping Sponges or a Brayer. I used Stamping Sponges, and since I wanted to do several different colors, and I knew I would only need a small area of each, I sponged multiple colors onto one piece of Glossy White card stock as shown:
Step 6: When the desired color(s) are achieved, stamp image(s) in Black StazOn ink. You must use StazOn for this project, and any project using Glossy White card stock.
