I want to show you how to do the Faux Pearl Technique that I used on this
triptych card that I made with the Elements of Style Stamp Set. So I've
prepared another image piece and colored it in. And then I'm going to take
a wadded up piece of plastic wrap
and I've got a little bit of
Shimmer Paint in here, and I'm just going to kind of splotch it.

some sponging with Sahara Sand.
And this is just going to help show up the
Faux Pearl finish that we've put on here. And the Sahara Sand is quite light,
so you're not going to get

So then I'm going to start sponging with a little bit of Crumb Cake.
And that's quite a bit darker,
