Mother of Pearl

I saw this technique about a week ago and I have just now been able to try it. I enjoyed making this background and it is very easy. Here are the supplies you will need.

glossy card stock
Saran wrap or bubble wrap
light colored pearl paint
light colored ink pad
pallet for paint

Take your pallet and squeeze some paint on it. I used a light gold color. Squish up your saran wrap or bubble wrap, dip it in the paint and pounce lightly all over the glossy card stock. Let the paint dry. Take a light color ink pad, I used a soft lavender, ( light pink or blue is good too ) and brayered over the glossy card stock. You will have an elegant, shimmery background. The first picture shows the background by itself and the second is the card I made with it.
