Hi everyone and a big thank you for joining me today. Now for something a bit different...
I've been playing with those 'dreaded' alcohol inks and finally come up with something acceptable!
Inspiration initially came from Ashli's sample for the current Simon Says Stamp & Show challenge, although I chose to mix the alcohol inks with mixative rather than paint.
The base of the chipboard puzzle piece got liberal dashings of Picket Fence DP and Crackle Glaze, as well as stencilled texture paste. You'll spot no doubt that the same stencil was used to emboss the background to keep things less complicated and fussy.
The crackes are made more evident by using Old Paper DS, which also helps to dull the brightness of the white paint prior to adding the alcohol inks.
As not one ounce of black used in this I reckon it qualifies for entry into the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge - Color.
As I used a stencil it will also be entered into the Artful Times challenge - Stencils/Masks.
the theme at Fashionable Stamping Challenges is Sentimental.
Right, a million and one things to get done (not least of which is to play some more with alcohol inks now I'm starting to get the hang of it!) Take care of yourselves, hugs Jenny xxx
