Playing with DI

Good morning Lovelies! It's a wet one so far! 
Heres a stamp set I picked up from Ally Pally! I haven't  made a card out of it yet as I'm not sure I like it? Anyway, I splodged some DI on my mat and lightly spritzed with water and smooshed the paper around to pick up all the colours, I partly dried it with heat tool but while still a bit damp I added some irredecent mica powder to it, then heat dried it, the stamp set are TH which I heat embossed using Cosmic shimmer EP in black which has a teal hue to it, I can't remember the name of at the moment but its very pretty, I decoupaged the bird on the branch, and the frame to the right is stamped twice, it doesn't show up so well in the photo but the EP and background really shimmer and glisten its really pretty! I mounted it onto black card, the backing I created by again smooshing DI with water onto paper and heat drying, I then took some bubble wrap and stamped randomly in various DI and finally Fran-taged using shabby white in top left corner, again photo doesn't really show it well, but it adds lovely texture as its very course and granular! I don't know if I will actually use this as a card? It was just play time! I like how it turned out though! Thank you for visiting! I don't mind if you don't like it! I just enjoy reading your comments xxx
