And I remembered to spritz with water after applying the colours! And I used perfect pearls water to flick to created the splatter effect.
And I LOVE the effect.
I layered the word die, "enjoy" from Papertrey Ink, offsetting it to give a shadow effect. You can see the shimmer of the perfect pearls on the splatters on the close-up.
I'm delighted with this technique and I can see myself using it again.
