Inky Background

Fab new blogazine Unruly Paper Arts are having an art quest this month, challenging us to make an inky background, so this is mine. I have used gold Krylon on watercolour paper, then inked over with Ecoline Inks. The Krylon acts as a resist and gives some very interesting results. I've used one of Tim's flourish stamps and black acrylic paint over the top.
I've turned this into an ATC to send to Sam as she's hosting a swap over at her new forum Paperplay.
Thanks very much for looking x
