I challenged my downline to try a new technique in June. This was my "something new". I used the Mother of Pearl technique as described in one of the Stampin' Success mags. I also used Future Floor Wax with an old blender pen & Pearl Ex to color in the flower. I stamped over again with Staz-on (using the Stamp-a-ma-jig) so you could see the outline of the flowers.

This card is just beautiful! I haven't ventured into the world of floor wax -- or Pearl Ex or Lumiere, for that matter! This makes me want to try it. Gotta' step out of that comfort zone! You said you used a blender pen, did you mean Aqua Painter?

Nope, I really did use a blender pen. I didn't know if the wax would gunk up my aqua painter and I was lazy and didn't feel like washing it all out afterwards, but I had an old dried up blender pen laying around, so I dipped the blender pen in the floor wax and then in the pearl ex. I've never tried the other way, so I don't know if it worked the way it's supposed to, but it worked well for me!
