Inky Grungy Background with Mica!


Hello Again,

Thank you for dropping by. Well here is another inky creation inspired by Craft Stamper magazine.

This is the finished article:

But i have made lots that i haven’t finished as cards yet!

So here they are:

They are made by using distress inks to ink up your background. If you want some grungyness then flick water onto the inky paper and blot with paper towel.

For the next step you must wait until any water splashes are dry (as mica sticks to any moisture)

Use a background stamp and distress ink on the dry paper and then sprinkle mica over the top (run in with a brush), Don’t forget to save the excess.

Then stamp away to your hearts content!

Hope you have enjoyed this inky adventure!

See you soon
