Faux Mother of Pearl

Yippee! another working week over with and I didn't have to go to London yesterday! even better no early train journey, I got a message on Tuesday night to say the customer had cancelled so I had another work at home day......

Here is a little card I did in a recent class showing the Mother of Pearl technique
I just love the pastel background and the stamp I used is from Stampin' Up! hostess set called Simply Soft, this was the first time I had used it, can you believe it such a lovely set of 2 step stamping but on this occasion we coloured the flowers using the ink pads and blender pen.

Pretty in Pink Scallop dots ribbon to finish it off............

the close up and the stamp Friend is from one of my favourite sets from the Spring Mini called You're a Gem,  If you love this set too and you haven't got it yet? then you need to as it's only available during the  sale of the Spring Mini (I will keep my fingers crossed though for it to go in the main catalogue)

Have a great day and Until next time........ be crafty ..........
