Here's a piece I made using HP 4x6 photo paper and Color Mists. I sprayed the Color Mists on and then heat set it...added some torn pieces of vellum script paper I sprayed also with Color Mists. I then added torn pieces of the vellum with Golden's soft matte gel medium. Once that was dry I added chalk inks to the bring out more of the color then stamped with Krylon gold leafing pen and also with black gesso. I then added the ribbon braiding, image and lettering.
This background I made again using photo paper
I created this background by stamping first with a chunky zebra striped foam stamp using Posh Impressions Resist on to photo paper and then heat set it for a moment and then sprayed with Color Mists.
