An Inky day !


Today i,m covered in ink !I decided to make some backgrounds and try out Stampbord,the only way to do it was use inks,I only heard about Stampbord this year,and bought some ATC size a few months back,it takes ink well and you can scrape out highlights,or if you muck it up sand it down and start again which is good !

The top background is just a try out,but the colours are so vibrant using inks I decided to bring them out even more using Dimensional Magic.But before doing that i stamped an oriental fan onto the dried ink's.

The other backgrounds above are using mica powder (Perfect Pearls) sprayed with my homemade ink and some gold,the pic does not do it justice,in real life its very sparkly and shimmers.
Same thing with the blue one only i dabbed a paper towel on top to give a pattern
Give it a try! if you dont mind getting messy haha.
