Messing about with inks

Hi  I've been messing about with my dye inks and made some cards. I  haven't done any inking for a while so had a really nice time playing.  I'm sorry to say my skills at taking photo's is nil at the moment  they are rubbish. I thought my last lot was rubbish but these are worse.
The first two are using a mask inking through then going over the top with Transparent paste. On the yellow one I used a wire netting stamp around the edge of the card then matt and layered. Then on the blue and lilac I inked around the edge of my card then  mounted on a wider matt of  backing paper.
My next two cards where made with the resist  techneque. I stamped  script repeatably with versemark  then covered with clear embossing powder. Inked my background. Then stamped the flowers the sentiment was stamped on the bottom where I had masked off.

I'm quite pleased with how they turned out, but they look much better in real life.
Hope you have all had a good start to the week and get some good time to play. Love and hugs x ChrisB
