1) Take a piece of Cling Film and lay it out flat.

2) Scribble some different Felt Tips onto Cling Film, dont overdo it as the colours dont show so much at this stage.

3) Spritz lightly with water, 2-3 sprays should do it.

4) Scrunch up the Cling Film.

5) Flatten out and place over Glossy Card.

6) Spread the colours out and lift Cling Film off.

The colours left on the Cling Film can be reused by spritzing again with water, this will leave a lighter background on the next card.

And here is my finished card which is for a challenge over at Auntys Forum
