Use Your Wings

Recently Lin Brown shared a technique video over on the Paperartsy blog using sprays and a few different mediums to create a lovely Paua shell effect - you can check her video out HERE.

I loved this idea so gave it a try using 3D gloss gel medium by Prima as part of their Finnabair range.

It was so difficult to try to take photos that really show how it looks in real life but here are a few attempts:

The stencil I used is from TCW - once the gel was dry I spritzed it with gold and blue mica sprays four times - drying in between.

I highlighted some of the raised areas with white fire treasure gold.

Mounted onto blue card and then a kraft card blank - the sentiment is from the Tim Holtz small talk sticker book.

Thanks for looking, please stop on over HERE to see what everyone else has been creating for this challenge.
