I have been having fun playing with alcohol inks over the last few weeks. When I saw Craft Stampers, challenge this month was about color-bright, vibrant and cheerful I wanted to jump right in! Here is a link to the challenge details. Take It Make It Challenge : April!
Exploring my forest
I recently took a class to learn to how to a make a hand stitch journal. I plan to use this piece as the cover for a new journal. The base is a strong watercolor paper. The background is created by blowing alcohol inks one color at a time across the glossy paper. It took considerable time to learn some minimal control over the results. I enjoy looking at the depth of all the layers of ink and the interesting blend of colors. I added to the forest story with a stamped bird and tree branch. The feather is embossed and die cut from a piece of alcohol inked paper and dots of heated embossing powder. The feather was added with pop dots to the background.
I appreciate you stopping by and leaving a comment!...Jan
