Default Sample background using glossy card with chalk ink

I finally got around to stamping my new background cardstock and have posted the results to the Gallery.

Glossy Background :: Tall Ship

Another neat thing to share: I'm always looking for a nice gold ink, and get tired of the only option for a really good looking gold being pigment ink - having to heat set if you don't want to emboss, etc. Well, on this card, I used Pallette ink in cognac, and the chemistry worked such that it came out looking like Antique Gold and that was another happy surprise.

The color in the background came out much more intense than I thought it would! Way cool!!!

Have you tried the Brilliance metallics? Galaxy Gold is very rich & bright and the Brilliance pigment inks are fast drying hybrids that can be used on vellum & glossy card stock as well as uncoated papers. I used it on an altered book and it looked just like antique gilding on both the leather like cover and the edges of the pages.

I think I have a good pix of that book. I made it for my son when he had an oral presentation as John Wycliffe to do last year in school. I'll post it in my gallery, if I can find it.

pigment ink on glossy will stay wet for years, i have some cards 10 years old that still smear; kaleidacolor is dye not pigment and it always dries quick for me. it makes beautiful backgrounds for stamping trees in black to make sunsets, sunrises, etc.

Thanks for the colorbox info

At your urging, I re-visited my collection of Brilliance inks. In the past, I never seemed to have much luck using them - especially the graphite black.

But yesterday, I pulled out the Gold and tried it on black glossy cardstock and WOW!! You're right, it did pop with brilliance. I used three colors on black glossy to make a Thank You card for my sister using the stamp images that she designed and it came out great. Of course, the scan isn't as pretty as the real thing, but it's close. I uploaded it to the Gallery. Thank You Card

Thanks, Jenna!

Have you tried drying the chalk ink with your heat gun? It might not dry as glossy as you'd like, but it will dry!
