Inked Background

Hello there,

I am back with yet another card which is inspired by Jennifer Mcguire's tutorial on her youtube channel. the technique was so cool and quite simple which made me wonder why had I not thought of it before. I am a huge fan of Jennifer's work and when it comes to inks I think she is like the ultimate guru. There is so much to pick up after seeing her work. The way she mixes inks with different elements to come up with the most awesome cards ever..

I will just go on and show the card to you guys..
