Here are samples . . . the first one is the original background for the card . . .
The second one is a second generation one with left over paint making it lighter . . .
The third sample is done on silver cardstock . . .

The fourth sample is done on watercolor paper . . .

These acrylic paints and mediums are so versatile and fun . . . I could play with them all day!!! LOL!!!

Michi, this is gorgeous. I am a real "background Junkie" so I will be giving this a try.

I am not really big on silver, but I think I prefer the silver one in the pictures you posted.

Thanks for the tutorial.

Really nice result. I think I like the silver the best. It could just be my monitor but it is so beautiful.

I'm glad you like this one, Marilyn . . . it's a re-visit on an old technique using Luna Lights Paints . . . I thought these acrylics really looked interesting on metallic colors . . .
