Today's challenge on SCS for Ways to Use it was to use our alcohol inks to create. I have a limited supply of copics, and only 4 alcohol based re-inkers, so the choice wasn't as daunting as some. I didn't have too much to think about.
I created a faux polished stone look on glossy white with some stream and a wild plum inks then taking some off with the alcohol blending solution. I received the image through the Pay It Forward thread on SCS and distressed it a bit after crumpling it up. I also had a ghost flower image that I used the same polished stone technique with the same colors. I added some clear embossing powder to the flower and while warm, molded the petals to make it a bit 3D. I don't have any purple brads, so I took a copper one and added some purple embossing powder which gave the brad a bit of a purple metallic sheen.
I think I'm going to head out to my local scrapbook store for some more natural inks to try it again.
Thanks for popping by.
