I did this card at my isi-in-laws last Friday so you may have seen it on her blog http://kraftsbykatemartin.blogspot.com/. It is using a technique called 'mother of pearl' for the background. Use stampin up frost white paint and dab it onto gloss card using scrunched up cling film. Then sponge over this with colour from an ink pad as much or as little as you like and you will get a pearly effect. Stamp over with your chosen design et voila - the finished card. I fashioned the Mother's Day card below on this original one.
