Basically it is as simple as using a ball of Saran Wrap to sponge on Stampin' Up's Frost White Shimmer Paint (made by Tsukineko). When it dries you sponge the whole thing with any color ink to get the subtle pearlized look. Dawn's video on this post walks you through the whole process and her sample card is gorgeous!
The colors on my card come from The Paper Players Color Challenge.
- Stamps: American Art Stamp
- Ink: Stampin' Up Baja Breeze, copics to match Poppy Parade and a green
- Paper: Stampin' Up Baja Breeze, So Saffron, Whisper White, Black
- Accessories: Stampin' Up Frost White Shimmer Paint, Sizzix embossing folder, Martha Stewart butterfly punch, SU pearls, satin ribbon to match Poppy Parade
