Happy Little Stampers March CAS Challenge (DT)


Hi everyone, I hope you're having a good week.

It's time to start a new monthly challenge at Happy Little Stampers and our CAS theme is to make a clean and simple card using the technique of Faux Mother of Pearl.

Our sponsor is Happy Little Stampers and the winner will receive a $15 gift certificate to spend in the HLS shop.

I have to admit, I haven't tried this technique before, but after having watched some short tutorials, it was surprisingly simple!

To make my faux mother of pearl, I used some scrunched up cling wrap to lightly apply white Liquid Pearls to a piece of card, let it dry and then sponged on some distress inks.

Please do check out the short tutorials and DT inspiration at the HLS CAS challenge blog and we hope you will be inspired to join in!

How lovely, Sue ... the mother of pearl behind that glorious burst of circles is gorgeous ... and that delicate butterfly is a perfect finishing touch! So happy to be designing with you at HLS this month! Anita :)

Background showing in a cut-out is beautiful. And so perfectly fits the used die.

You don't even know how happy you've made me with this card, Sue! I have had that beautiful dotty circle die since I first discovered dies a couple of years ago and it stymies me. I really, really love how you've made your card design with it and I will be adding this to my to-CASE folder. In fact, I should print a copy of your card and put it in the envelope with my die! (Gotta love those hamsters!) I'm dying to try that pouncing with cling wrap using liquid pearls, too! Thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #6!! Enjoy your day! Hugs, Darnell
