This card is tons of fun to make. It is using a realy cool form of resist. I used pearlescent medium to get the background to look splotchy. In real life, it's shiney too. I started with a piece of white glossy cardstock. I sponged the medium onto the paper with a sea sponge. Do it sparenly, this area will remain white. Then I brayered over it with a Big N' Juicy inkpad. The collage image is stamped with Archical ink in Jet Black.
Pearlescent Medium is tricky to find if you don't know where to look. I have always used Golden brand and it used to be available at Michaels & JoAnns. They don't carry Golden brand anymore. You can still get it at your local art store. It's a bit pricey, so you can go with a lesser brand if you want. I have found both DecoArt & Americana at JoAnns & Michaels. It's under $4. I also like to mix mine with my re-inkers for a beautiful spatkle.
