Inked Background Cards

I recently watched a video by Gina from Gina K. Designs. She showed how to ink a background and then stamp on top of it. The effect is terrific and it creates a very clean looking card. 

The first card (in greens) was inked with dye inks so I was able to stamp right away as those inks dry very fast. 

The last two cards were inked using Distress Oxide inks. I learned quickly that stamping on wet ink does NOT work. I had to redo the blue card and then decided to do one in orange/red tones. One sentiment is stamped within the inked section and the other is just off the edge. I did decorate the inside of each card as well.
