MOTHER MAY I

One of the great advantages of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator is receiving the monthly publication of "Stampin' Success" in the mail.  This publication is full of business tips and techniques to help demonstrators grow their business.  I found this card in one of the Stampin' Success magazines and tried it for myself. 

 If you click on the picture to enlarge it, you will see a shimmery glow to the stamped panel of the card.  This technique is called "faux mother of pearl".  All you need is plastic wrap and some Stampin' Up! Frost White Shimmer Paint.  You simply place a small amount of the shimmer paint on a foam plate, wad up the plastic wrap and dab it in the shimmer paint.  Next you pounce the plastic wrap on your cardstock, let it dry and them stamp your image with Staz-on ink.  This technique adds a little elegance to your project.  Go ahead and try it today.  It's very easy to do and it'll make you say, "Wow!  Now that's pretty!"

Thanks for peeking in on me today.
