Playing with Minx shimmering inks!

Hi, Ellie Knol again, and you may have noticed that the Design Team of Art Anthology is featuring the Minx shimmering inks lately.

So, I will be featuring them today as well.
They are great to make backgrounds for cards or maybe for an art journal page (or a canvas, or a watercolor painting etc etc).
For now : 4 different ways to use the inks.
.. .. I hope to do some more in near future!


I’ve used the same colors for all 4 techniques.

For step-by-steps of all 4 techniques,
please see the Snapguide at the end of this post!
