Faux mother of pearl

This was my first card, butI didn't like the main panel because the cherry smeared. I do like the lace ribbon border punch with cherry cobbler seam binding woven through it. And I used the new stripes embossing folder for the daffodil layer.

 Inside of card. All the punches were punched from other layers of the card or from the bottom of the card that we trimmed first.
This was our technique card for stamp club this month. You can't really appreciate the effect of this card from this picture. Try clicking on the pic to enlarge it for more detail. Use frost white shimmer paint- just one drop is enough-on glossy cardstock. Dab it on with crumpled plastic wrap, then when dry-fast drying-brayer or sponge with ink, then stamp image. Rub excess ink off the shimmer paint with a paper towel or rag. Colors for both cards were chosen using the color coach. If you don't have it, add it to your wish list.
