Hi everyone. I made a tutorial showing how to make the faux-mother-of-pearl background that is used in this card. It' my first video that I've done by myself. :) I used my camera ... and thought the quality would be good, but now that it's uploaded to YouTube (after a lot off stressful moments!!), the quality is not as good as I hoped it would be.
But, it's my first attempt at doing this myself, so I've learned lots, which is always a good thing. I'm hoping to make more videos and improve as I go :)
I'd love for you to take a look ... click HERE to watch on YouTube ... and thanks so much!
At some point I'll need to learn how to embed the videos so they can be seen on my blog as well .... more to learn :)
ETA: Sue gave me instructions for embedding my video .... THANK YOU SUE!! :)
ETAA (Edited to Add again!) :) I had a few questions about the supplies used in my video. Will make sure to add a product list on any future videos. :)
I used SU! inks here, but distress inks also work really well (I have both). I'm sure there are other inks that would work, but don't have any personal experience.
The Frost White All Purpose ink is made by Tsukineko. I buy it on-line from Dharma Trading Company (US). Their prices and shipping rates are really good (they ship international ... I got mine sent here to Canada). I'm sure any metallic or pearl finish acrylic paint would work well with this resist technique ... I have also used Lumiere acrylic paint, but Tsukineko is my favorite.
I used jumbo daubers for sponging my ink (also made by Tsukineko). These sponges work well for me. I bought them on-line through Amazon.com (US).
