I figured out that when doing Josephs Coat with Polished stone underneath, that you cant have too much ink on the bottom layer. On the card I tried last night, the summer sun reinkers were coming through my "coat" and it wasnt working out.
Here's the others with recipies..

And Thanks for the encouragement! Sometimes knowing when to walk away is the key.. Hey.. That sounds like a country song!
I digress.... What I learned... The trick is to keep the colors underneath somewhat muted and blended.. Off to finish the class (that i'm teaching in 2 hours) Yikes!
