On both cards I have used the Mother of Pearl technique which is now one of my favourite techniques.
The first card is the one I made for Bex it is a complete case (except for the bird) of a card Dawn Griffiths made which I fell in love with.
Here is a close up of the mother of pearl technique on the card
This card is Emma's card I used the same stamp set but stamped it differently
it also has the mother of Pearl technique but with sponging as well
