Bloggers Challenge 151
What do the colors red, teal, and curry have in common? They're the colors of the the Bloggers Challenge this week. I guess I was in a psychedelic mood when I worked on this card. These colors yelled wild. I decided to use Tim Holtz's technique of dripping alcohol inks on glossy paper and blowing with compressed air. If the technique has a name, it escapes me. I used my Adirondack alcohol inks in red pepper, stream, and butterscotch (the closest I had to curry) with a can of compressed air and created the background. Who better to feature on the card than Jimi Hendrix? This image comes from Stampsmith stamps. The saying is a Jimi Hendrix quote and is from Paula Best stamps. The card and frame papers are from Club Scrap. I used my Distrezz-It tool to distress around the image frame. Another fun challenge!
