Gelli Plate Play with Thick & Thin Paints

On Next-Generation-Stampers Group, the challenge this month is use a Gelli Plate. I decided trying the technique of using thin and thick paints together.

Then brayered over with a thicker paint, a light blue acrylic paint.
Then pressed a sheet of paper over the paint on the Gelli Plate and lifted off. Here's the result:

 Then pressed paper over the Gelli Plate and lifted off. This is the first one:
There was still a lot of paint on the Gelli Plate, so pressed down another sheet of paper for the ghost print:
