WWC217 - Michelle's Masculine "Anything Goes" Challenge

Hello and thank you for stopping by!  This week the theme for Watercooler Wednesday is Masculine "Anything Goes".  Michelle is our hostess.
Once a quarter, I take a Copic class with Laura Griffin.  Recently, instead of coloring with Copics, we used Copic refills to make alcohol ink backgrounds.  I've been playing with alcohol inks, but had never tried re-inkers.  Reinkers make a vibrant glossy creation!

For this card we layered on three different colors of Copic ink and used straws to move the ink around on the Yupo paper.  When we were satisfied with the result, we added a bit of gold.  Then we die-cut our sentiments (Papertrey "Count My Blessings".  I used bold jewel tones that I thought would be suitable for sending to a man yet still fun and festive.
