Team Meeting Make n takes, Faux Pearl Technique

Over the next several days, I’m going to share the make n takes everyone did at our meeting. The Theme of our meeting was Everything Shimmer Paint. So everyone received 1 Shimmer Paint (of their choice), Aqua Painter, Stampin’ Spritzer, Sponge Dauber and a skewer. I’ll be sharing 5 things using Shimmer Paint.

The technique we will be using for this card is called, Faux Pearl. The inside panel is where we did this technique. I gave them two options, vertical or horizontal. We used Frost White Shimmer Paint and a piece of Plastic Wrap. I don’t use Plastic wrap any more, so I went to the Dollar Store. Next drop a little paint onto  your Silicone Craft Sheet, crumple up a small piece of the plastic wrap, and pounce on the paint with the plastic wrap, then pounce on the Whisper White cardstock. Let it dry, it only takes a couple of minutes, then you can stamp the flowers, 2 big, 2 small, in Blackberry Bliss, and fill in with the leaf stamp using Mint Macaron. Wrap the Mini Ruffled Ribbon around and mount onto the Blackberry Bliss cardstock. Next its time to decide, vertical or horizontal?


Add the Frosted Floral Specialty Designer Paper to the Foil-Edged Card with Snail, Then your panel with the Faux Pearl Technique. Stamp the sentiment and flowers onto Whisper White cardstock. Before I realized there was the perfect die included in the bundle I used the Everyday Label Punch for the sentiment. There are also dies to cut both of the flowers.  I die cut a couple of the Velum leaves and adhered to the back of the sentiment, then added the sentiment with Dimensionals. Flowers go down last.

To give your flowers a little body, place flower in your hand and with your thumb press down to “cup” the flower. Then I just added a couple of Glue Dots to add them to my card.
