Black pearl technique

This card shows the Black Pearl technique. You take a piece of roller towel and split the layers. Put the thin layer onto a styrofoam veggie/meat punnet and gently sponge it with craft paints including a metallic colour. Allow it to dry and then peal it off to reveal a gorgeous background paper. If it is too uneven then flatten it with a book. The butterfly collage image is a Tin Can Mail stamp from Inkadinkado and has been sponged with radiant pearls, the vertical Happy Birthday is from Stamp n stuff.
