Faux mother of pearl

This technique looks and sounds hard but it's not.

I used a piece of saran wrap, crumpled, dipped it into a little bit of the frost white shimmer paint and then dabbed it all over my VV cs. Let dry. After I sponged the edges in Soft Suede ink I wiped some of the ink off the paint. Creates such a unique background. I used the retired set, Bliss for this card. Love that set.

I am planning a scrappy garage sale, was hoping for some time in July but my days are slipping by. I'll let you all know when I settle on a date.

Have a great evening!
