This card was inspired by the challenge on the Less is More blog to "Use Ink". What I forgot was the part of the challenge that said ONE LAYER..oh well, botched that challenge, but I still love the look of this card.
What it's hard to see is the awesome shimmer of the paints..
I used these (got them at CHA 2 years ago....and haven't used them...horrors!) Mica Gloss Paints from Judikins.
They look awesome on black glossy cardstock (which I also bought) but I used them on watercolor paper here because I wanted to see what they would do. They didn't spread but they didn't soak in either. I used a Tim Holtz blender to swipe them across the paper and love the results.
Cardstock: 140 lb. cold press watercolor paper, PTI Aqua Mist
Ink: Tim Holtz Walnut Stain, Judikins Mica Gloss
Other: Tim Holtz blender
