So whats the challenge? Heidi has a great one this week to get us in the party mood....she is giving us a fantastic sketch to pair up with the faux Mother of Pearl Technique. I have to admit, I had never tried this technique before and I really enjoyed it. Using the Frost White Shimmer Paint from SU makes it super easy. If you need a tutorial check out this one over at Splitcoaststampers and again, just substitute the paint they mention with SU Shimmer Paint.
