Radiant rain sprays and stencil and cling film

hello  crafters another sneaky peep at the Radiant rain sprays and stencils
Sheena Douglass will be sharing with us on TV on the Monday 28th November  do try and catch the shows
if you remember yesterday i got the go ahead to play this time i introduced  embossing powders
 and Cling Film !
its so much fun you do get messy ….but at the same time you get some
fantastic effects with this technique every time it’s different

can i just say the colours in the sprays are concentrated and rich in colour  so you don’t need to use a lot to get it like the  above image i used lots of  water

with Centrua Pearl card again  wet it with clean water and then lightly sprayed the card with 2 colours i can't remember which  sorry i just got stuck in .lol…… but it had to be a pink and a purple once it had all started to blend i  placed over the cling film scrunched it up  all over you will see the puddles of paint collecting in the creases  don’t over do it  you will loose your colors and make a puddle of mud!!!!!!!!!
leave card to dry  it will buckle but once dry it should flatten out
if not just run a iron over the back not that i did cor i don't do irons!!!! lol ...

as you can see  it’s a very subtle effect  when you add lots of water to the paints  totally different from what you would expect ….you get new colours when they blend together the light colours will move the dark colours away...
  with the  stencil and cut and dry foam using a small amount of paint in the same colours i used for backing paper and more centrua pearl card i stencilled the tower .. you get a sharper  image doing it that way  with the cut and dry foam.…..once dry i over stamped and heat embossed in black glitter powder around the edge to add extra texture then i cut it out
attached to card base with Collall 3D gel  then i ran the remaining card through with the swirl Darcie embossing folder it embossed beautifully matted onto gold mirri card added a few feathers and flowers from wild orchid  hat pins  and ribbon i had already got from joanna sheen
thank you for popping by today

This is gorgeous Linda. I like messy, but I don't get to do it enough just now - too busy practising colouring! I can definitely see that I am going to have great difficulty sitting on my hands when these sprays appear!
