Faux Mother-of-Pearl Stamping

Once again, I'm CASEing ;)  For those of you "on the fence" about signing up to be a demonstrator because you think you're "not creative" - believe me, there are plenty of techniques out there that you can learn and "make your own"!  I personally have very few original ideas to teach my students, but just like them, there are so many techniques out there in internet-land that are new to me and new to them.  I don't think I'll ever run out of things to demonstrate using the CASE (Copy And Share Everything) philosophy :)  One of these days, when grad school is done, I hope to come up with some creative ideas of my own, to repay all I've learned from the many talented demos who so freely share their papercrafting talent.  In the meantime, here's another technique I just learned - again, CASEd from my adopted downline, Michon's, blog.  I went & Googled this technique after seeing Michon's example, and incorporated ideas from a couple of different demo blogs and videos to "make it my own".  Here's the result:

It's hard to photograph this technique, but can you see the "patina"?  This is a really impressive and beautiful effect, and SO super-easy!  I'll be scheduling this as a product-based technique class very soon, so keep an eye on my Events calendar at my demo website for details.

Here, I've used my favorite go-to stamp set, Elements of Style.  I may go back, flip this around, and add the hummingbird stamp from the set to the flowers.  Right now, I'm enjoying a little debate with myself as to what I'll use this little die cut on :)  Most likely, a card for my Mom - she loves flowers and birds <3

Happy stampin'!
