Hello everyone, hope you're all having a good weekend. I'm very inky fingered here having been experimenting with Tim Holtz's fabulous Alcohol Ink Agate on Grunge technique from page 53 of his Compendium of Curiosities which is the subject of this week's challenge at Linda Ledbetter's Studio L3.
My creation turned out a little different to my original plan as I couldn't find my grunge board (a really big tidy up is on the cards I think!) and used instead some harlequin patterned grunge board squares that I did come across in my search. The end result is a little more blingy than intended because the pattern on the grunge board caused the alcohol ink to behave in a different way.
Here it is!
Stamptacular Sunday and glued them to a piece of silver embossed card rubbed with Royal Purple Stazon ink.
I inked a larger square of the same card with Olive Green Stazon ink and then stamped on Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz paisley with the purple ink.
I cut out some metal flowers with the Tim Holtz Alterations Tattered Florals die and coloured these with alcohol inks. I stamped the paisley design on the larger flower petals. I added a brass charm in the centre.
That's it from me until next week as I'm off to Ally Pally to the Big Stamping and Scrapbooking Show tomorrow and have a very early start!
