Papercraft Star Challenge 69

This is the photo inspiration for this week's challenge to use a flourish at Papercraft Star.
I hope you will come on over and play along with us. You have until 6 am Monday to win some digital downloads from our sponsor The House Across The Bay.
I liked the feel of the photo inspiration so I tried to recreate it with the digital image White Grunge Squares. The image has a subtle damask and flourish pattern and it has my favorite color brown!
It's hard to photograph but I added an iridescent medium over the image. I wanted it to capture light like it does when it rains during the day.
Here's a picture of the bottle of the Winsor & Newton Watercolor Iridescent Medium I used. Look at the shimmer at the top of the bottle, so pretty. Just a little bit can go a long way. If you put some in a spray mist bottle with re-inkers and water you can create your own glimmer mist. This bottle costs around $9 and can go a very long way!
