B is for Brushed Ink Backgrounds

This is a fun and easy background technique. Squirt some dye reinkers on a craft sheet or wax paper. Pick up the color of one of the dye ink with a 1" brush.
Brush the ink on glossy card stock, working quickly.
With a clean brush, pick up the second color, and brush on the same card stock in a different direction. Let dry.
Next one, used blue, green, yellow and orange dye inks, brushing in a variety of directions.
As above, adding in a little pink with the orange.
I like how the original colors show through the other layers. Lots of possible combinations with this technique.
