X is for fauX at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers

 Good Saturday morning!! It's time for a new challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers X  is for fauX. Interpret as you will,  So many Faux techniques out there or you could go literal as some of the team have. Take a look at Edna in her Faux fox stole. 

I decided to go with a Faux Technique my go to one is Faux Silk but I wanted to try something different this time so I did Faux Mother of Pearl, I found a video  HERE but used Blueprint Sketch distress oxide ink I made the faux mother of pearl with Frost White all purpose ink I bought years ago from Stampin'up.

This is my attempt at Faux Mother of Pearl. and now the finished card.

Once my background was dry I was having trouble decided what I could do as not to "hide" the mother of pearl background and I saw CAS(E) this Sketch prompt and I knew what I wanted to do. I entered their last challenge I don't normally do CAS but I'm very happy with this and nothing is taking away from the technique. 

Finished the inside with an Impression Obsession stamp.  Perfect for almost any occasion .

I'm entering this in:

Rudolph Days ~~ October 

CAS(E) this Sketch ~~ #396 because of the size of my Large Sentiment I turned the sketch.

Just Us Girls ~~ #560 Wild Card Week Word Die-cuts

Thanks for stopping by today and although I didn't have any snark on my card today check out the rest of the Sister's projects on the MAIN BLOG you will find snark there.

Your Winter Wishes card is beautiful. I also bought the Frost White ink from SU and have never used mine. I like it on your background of DOX Blueprint Sketch. I'm sure it is stunning in real life.

I've been searching for a Winter Wishes die set and really like the die font style on your card. Is it a recent purchase? If so, I would appreciate it if you could please post the manufacturer. Thank you.
