Well, today's new technique was kinda cool. The idea was to use a spray bottle and reinkers, along with perfect pearls to make a cool background. The recipes can be found on SCS homepage under the Monday challenge TLC173.
For my first card, I took a travel size bottle of hair spray, added Blush Blossom reinker and sprayed some watercolor paper. Then, since I did not have pearl-ex, I took Pewter Rub and Buff and smeared it all over and then buffed it off. The results - in real life - are very pretty with a great shimmer to it.
