Inky flowers.....




I was messing about with a variety of inks yesterday, with the intention of creating some background papers...got a bit carried away ! I brayered Kaleidacolor inks onto some watercolour paper in a random fashion, added some shimmer mists , spritzed it with loads of water then blobs of Perfect Pearls. The result made me think flowers so I accentuated these by dragging the ink about with a wet paint brush and used some ink on a dabber to make the centres.
