Faux Mother of Pearl Stampin Up Occasion Mini Spring Is Blossoming Promotion

Good Morning My Crafty Friends. .  .  Welcome to Tuesday.  Today I have a technique and a scrapbooking page to share with you.  The technique is called Faux Mother of Pearl.  The supplies you will need to do this technique are:  cardstock color of your choice (I used Rose red), Frost Shimmer Paint #116854, paper plate, and a piece of plastic wrap.  I used this technique on my Fun Flower cut out.  I cut my cardstock with the Fun Flower Die Cut #121812 first.  I felt I had more control of the paint this way, if you are not using an image just size the piece of cardstock that you need.  Poor a little of the paint on your paper plate.  Crumble the plastic wrap in your hands.  Now dip it in your paint and start dabbing onto your cardstock.  Keep dabbing until you get the piece to look like you want.  Be sure to not cover your whole piece, you want to keep a good balance between the two colors.  Viola' you have a Mother of Pearl Fun Flower.  The rest of the page is simple.  Just divided it into 3's.  My color combo is Old Olive, Crumb Cake, Rose Red, Very Vanilla and Springtime Vintage DP.  I attached my Fun Flower with the large 3D  dots.  This gave my flower some depth.  I added a button for my center and tied it with some Linen Thread.  My ribbon is the Rose Red Seam Binding Ribbon.

This page is one of our Stamp Club pages for this month.  I still need to do some cutting so I best skadadal right out of here and get to cuttin'.  Thanks for stopping by.  If you have any questions on this technique please contact me.  I believe splitcoast has a pictorial if you need it.  Have a wonderful day.
