Well, it seems I am making some progress. The 'oops' experiment from the other night actually dried, so I went ahead and used it as a background for this handsome gent.
I went further to try a set. The results are varied. I used glossy paper to print the image and then Inksentials Glossy Accents to adhere them to the card. I don't have a brayer, so Mr. Kook is a bit lumpy here & there, but I think it adds character. Some of the images covered in ink look pretty good. but the final one seems lost altogether! I poured a LOT of blender on him, but I think he's a goner. LOL
