I had a gesso'd playing card sitting on my desk from another project and decided to use it for my base. I brushed some Absorbent Ground over the top so I could use Dylusions spray inks and have them still be bright. I think gesso just kind of soaks up the color and mutes it too much.
Once the ground was dry I sprayed, splattered and swirled some Dylusions over the top. Next, I stamped and stencilled some more bits on the background and then stamped the main image on a separate piece of paper. She and her little pet were colored with Copics and fussy cut; I added a bit of Glossy Accents on their eyes to make them stand out a bit, too.
