Inky backgrounds

Yes, I got inky!  should have taken a pic of my hands but who thinks to do that, lol!  I have been wanting to play with these new (to me) Judi-kins Mica Gloss metallic effects ink that I picked up at Springfield convention earlier this month.  I talked and watched Judi (from Judi-kins) play with these inks at the convention here .  Here are a bunch of backgrounds I created ...... once I started I couldn't stop.  It will take be a couple of days to make them into cards.  to do the backgrounds all you do is squirt out some of the inks on a piece of glossy or matte cote cardstock or black glossy then smoosh (technical term, lol) the inked cs and another piece of cs together.  peel them apart and you have lots of ink all over both pieces you can let dry and use like that or take a clean stamp and stamp into the inky card .... then stamp inked image onto another piece of cardstock.  see pics above with stamped sun, dragonflies and vase. 
another thing you can do is after you peel apart the cs, brayer the colors out to make beautiful smooth backgrounds then you can stamp and emboss on it.  see above pics with lady head, people background stamp, crackle background and branches background.  I plan on cutting up the big stamped backgrounds to make a couple of fun cards.  you can make pics bigger by clicking on pic.  hope you like this inky adventure.  come back soon to see actual cards made with these inky backgrounds.
