Faux Mother of Pearl Series--Part 2 of 3

For the second project of stamp club each month we do a scrapbook page. Using the same technique as we did on the card, we created the boarder for the bottom of the page and for the title bar at the top.

To get the even coloring on the long strip we used a brayer to apply the Certainly Celery ink over the dabbed Shimmer Paint. A brayer is a wonderful way to get even coverage of ink over a large area. It is also useful for applying ink to large background size stamps. When stamping over top of the Mother of Pearl technique (like with the grass) it is important to use Stazon Ink. The butterfly is made by folding a die cut in half and tying a small piece of hemp twine around the body.

New stamp clubs are getting ready to start soon. Contact me for more information on how to join.
