Alcohol ink agate on grunge: A Studio L3 Compendium challenge
Fortunately, this week's Compendium challenge, alcohol ink agate on grunge, is only another opportunity to spread around these awesome little bottles of creative outlet.
Today's foray into the messy dangers of alcohol inks left a swath of cranberry-colored overflow, but I also managed to get some of the goo where I wanted it to go, ending up with this mottled grunge paper background.
It's a cool base for my bird and wings, and do you love that vintage clock fragment? Me Too!
I only wish I could take credit for that part ... I decided on the copper-colored clock back and stamped the face and added the brad ... but it's My Guy who suggested a clock when I couldn't decide on an appropriate dimensional object.
Oh well. It was my idea to join Linda's Studio L3 Compendium Challenge, so who's really the smarter one? Alright fine. Well, I'm cuter!
Thinking of more important matters: The second piece you see here is a card I made on Saturday after returning home with a shoebox in my suitcase that was filled with Holtz stuff.
So, I jumped back through time and completed a grunge paper flower for the Compendium Challenge two weeks ago.
Just look at it! All distress inky with marmalade and worn lipstick and made crispy and shiny with distress embossing powders in fired brick and tattered rose.
What are you doing still reading? Get the hell on to Linda's Studio ... she's waiting to see what you can do with alcohol ink and something grunge-y.
