Alcohol Wrap

Hello there.

I've been playing with alcohol inks on Yupo paper.

This time I split a cellophane bag and dropped a few different colors on one side of the bag
and spritzed with some blending solution
I laid some photo paper on the ink, closed the bag and smooshed.

While the ink was still wet, I  added some scrunched plastic wrap on top and left it to dry.

What a fun look!

I cut the finished piece in half and made 2 cards.

The images were stamped with StazOn ink.

The CAS Mix Up August challenge is
Using stamping, alcohol inks, plastic wrap and die cutting.

I'm also going to enter at

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Those cards are fantastic! Love the vibrant colors of the alcohol inks. I tried the cling wrap technique with watercolor paints, but you inspire me to try it with alcohol inks :) Thank You!
