Mists & Plastic Wrap

I decided to revisit this technique, which has been around for some time. In stead of brayering on dye ink, I sprayed two colors (yellow & red) of home made mists onto glossy card stock. Then I sprayed water over the colors and then sprayed on gold Shimmering Mist. Last I covered it all with wrinkled plastic wrap and set it aside to dry.

When I removed the plastic wrap, I decided it needed a little more texture.

I sprayed more water over the surface and dabbed a crunched up ball of plastic wrap over the surface.

Here is the dried half sheet. The glimmer of gold shows up better in person.

You're even more of a background junkie than Trish is, Carol!! LOL!
I love the effects you've achieved with this and have read the paste one too. I must get myself some shimmer spays or try and make some... love the gleam of them!
