Faux Mother of Pearl

Create these beautiful background papers using Frost White shimmer paint, glossy paper, light colored classic ink and plastic wrap. Scrunch up a piece of plastic wrap and apply a small amount of shimmer paint. Dab over the glossy cardstock and let dry. Then brayer desired ink color all over then wipe with a paper towel. It's just that easy.
The colors I used on the above cards are Sahara Sand, Pretty in Pink, Crumb Cake and Bashful Blue.
