Ecoline and grunge

When I was in the Netherlands in February, my sister Jenni introduced me to Ecoline inks (waterbased inks), that can be used to make backgrounds. For more information and a tutorial, have a look at the amazing Godelieve's website here.
So I bought the inks (of course) and made up some backgrounds (which is very messy and great fun), and here are 2 cards made with one of the backgrounds I created.
I went for a darker, more grunge look to these cards.

The pictures and frames are from Crafty Individuals. The frames have been covered in terra texture paint, stamped, painted and then highlighted with viva metal paint.
All the stamps are the new 7 Gypsy's Venice stamp set.
