I used a Majestic Blue LUMINARTE RADIANT RAIN Mister in a dauber bottle to create the wash blue sky background moving it left to right across the cardstock in a sweeping motion, while it was wet I smudged some white into the wet background then gave it another coat of radiant rain. Then misted a slightly lighter metallic blue over the top.
Another great thing to do with Radiant rain is to apply it with a paint brush dipped into the bottle. Or get a kitchen sponge and tip some onto the sponge to dip stamps into. Let your pictures and patterns dry completely then paint a wash over them using acrylic paint. The luminarte pattern becomes more subtle but still shines through.
CREATING 3D ELEMENTS – Dry brush Paint the back of overlays as I have here to still get the overlay effect but hide 3D foam or double sided adhesive tape.
