Cling Wrap background using Black card stock

Hi all, I'm back for the mid month reminder as Guest Designer for CAS Mix up's January Challenge Cling Wrap stamping and your choice.

This time I used a black card stock with some Lindy's Stampgang sprays and some perfect pearls mixed with water.  It's hard to see but the background really shimmer.

You can see from the close up the watercolour really gives and interesting background, in real life it's quite sparkly.  Don't forget to use other colours of card stock when you try the cling wrap background.
Also don't forget to head over to the design teams blogs to check out all the amazing examples.

I actually created a large sheet for my background the rest of the cards will appear over the next few weeks.  I randomly stamped 2 different Impression Obsession stamps Lunar Landing a Seth Apter stamp and Nautilus over the card stock after I created the cling wrap background and then heat embossed in white.
