I have a card to share today that I made following a technique by Jennifer McGuire which you can find HERE

I first cut a panel of white linen card to fit my card base and then masked off to create the rectangle in the middle, I used distress inks Peacock feathers and Salty Ocean to colour the panel and then used Perfect Pearls over the top of the ink to create my shimmer. I then put the panel through my big shot with a swiss dot embossing folder.

The hello is from a Stampin Up Hello You set, and the small flowers are from a Stampin Up punch details below post

I am entering this card into the following challenge

Table built using Product Table Builder by The Crafty Owl - Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.
