These backgrounds are created on ordinary MATT white card stock.

They don’t look like much in the scans but believe me when I say in real life the colours are amazing and they really do SHINE! The overall effect is almost Interference!

All you have to do is paint a fine layer of metallic acrylic paint to the surface of your card stock and let it dry.

Once dry apply the inks direct to the painted surface to create your backgrounds!

The paint acts as a kind of resist for the inks and they go on with a really cool texture…once the inks have dried you can stamp on the backgrounds with Stazon inkpads!
