I started with a piece of card which i added some stick on paper ribbon down the side the colours dont matter. I then wanted to get some texture and in this case i used woodware fluffy stuff (again the colour doesnt matter much as it will be covered later. I spread the fluffy stuff in random patterns on the card then used a heat gun to dry and fluffy it up as the heat makes it go all puffy and bubbly.
Next i wanted colour. You can use acrylics,inks etc for colouring. I used silver ink which i applied with a paintbrush. (wash the paintbrush immediately after using it )
When dry you can add another ink if you wish or many. I used another pearly ink in blue and then i used some adirondack alcohol ink in wild plum. i applies some in spots and some with the application tool and felt pad.
This was how it turned out (click on pic to see more detail ) but i sometimes use acrylic paint instead of inks to colour. I just love experimenting
