Izink is a super fun acrylic pigment ink imported from France by Clearsnap. It has properties of acrylic paint but also of pigment ink and has a shimmer and shine to it as well – I'm still learning about all of the amazing techniques and effects that can be achieved with Izink as well as the many surfaces it works on. Today I want to share with you an easy mixed media background with Izink. You'll want to use this on cards, art journals, canvases and more – it's so easy and fun!


I created this card using this technique but you can translate it onto any surface you desire:


I like the shimmer in this card becuase it makes it a little metallic, which goes well with the classic car stamp I used. I think this is a great masculine card but you can change the images and colors to make a feminine card or a general card. This mixed media background with Izink technique also looks great on metal, wood, and plastic – the sky is the limit as to what you can use Izink on!
