Do you ever remember a technique that you haven't used for ages ... and then keep doing it? I was showing my mum how to do the faux mother of pearl technique using pearl effects, distress inks and cling film ... so having created a number of panels using different colours I decided I would try to make a card with them. Also I find that when my creative mojo goes off for a walk trying out old and new techniques sometimes gets the ideas flowing again. So this card uses some of the panels:
I die cut the pale blue using a Tim Holtz mixed media die which is designed to stay in a piece of card but I thought if I trimmed it, it would look like a piece of lace. I die cut the solid butterfly in pink faux mother of pearl before layering the detailed white die cut on top. Stamped the sentiment and then added it all to the card.
