Yesterday I posted a card in honor of my friend Loll.
A while back, Loll sent me some copper sheets that she had heated.
Thank you so much for your generosity, Loll.
She's made some gorgeous cards with the copper.
Here's one that I did with it.
I also used the Faux Mother of Pearl technique that she has used several times lately.
To do this technique you put some Frost White paint on a craft sheet or wax paper
Dip some scrunched up plastic wrap in the paint, dab off the excess and tap the paint lightly on a piece of white cardstock leaving some of the cardstock uncovered.
Let it dry.
Sponge ink on the paper. It won't stick to the frost paint.
I sponged the top piece with Certainly Celery and Wild Wasabi.
The piece behind and the flowers were sponged with Very Vanilla.
After sponging the color, I rubbed with a folded paper towel to remove any ink from the frost paint.
I love the way the copper has different colors in it from the heating.
The tiny flowers were punched from some of the frost and vanilla FMOP and
punched with one of the Itty Bitty Shapes punches.
I used a 1/16" circle punch to punch the ends of the flowers to look like Dogwood.
The punched ends were tapped with a Primrose Petal marker.
The centers are a tiny pearl colored with a yellow Copic Marker.

Thanks for the visit.
