A change of technique....

I thought I'd share with you a card from my latest technique class.  We were learning the 'Faux Mother of Pearl" technique, and this is the card that we started to create.

During the course of teaching this technique, we began a discussion about distressing, and whether or not we could use the SU! distressing kit to achieve the same result.  So I whipped out my brand new, never been opened, despite being in my stash since it was introduced into the catalogue nearly 12 months ago (GASP!!!) Distressing Kit and we began to play.

This is the finished card using the distressing kit.

Surprise, surprise, I think I like the distressed one better. 

Here is a close up of the technique.  We all love Shimmer Paint!!

Stamp Set: Strength and Hope, En Francais
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink, Tea Stain (from Distressing Kit)
Card Stock: Whisper White, Pretty in Pink, Chocolate Chip
Other: Pretty in Pink and Rose Red Stamp'n'Write markers, Frost White Shimmer Paint, Basic Pearls, Scallop border punch

Happy Stamping.....Manda
