Once Upon a Midnight...Alcohol Inks and Tag
Gingersnap Creations has on the challenges for the month of October. It's Go Poe month...perfect for the month of spookiness. The supply challenge 122 is alcohol inks. Again I had an idea, but I wasn't sure it would work. I knew how to do the polished stone technique with alcohol inks on glossy, but I didn't know what would happen if I stamped an image and masked it before using the technique. I started by cutting my tag from glossy paper using the Tim Holtz large tag die. I stamped the raven (Rubber Bandit stamps) and masked it with eclipse tape. Then I applied the alcohol inks. As you can see, it worked. The feathers, sentiment (Rubber Bandit) and other bird (Tim Holtz) were stamped with Archival Ink on the alcohol inks. The raven might say "Nevermore" but I think I'll try this technique again.
