A little art

Alcohol ink was one of our themes for the byhandartists yahoogroup atc swap for June.  I wanted to see if I could do some shapes with alcohol ink and decided that I wanted a bandana look for summer.  I did a paisley shape in different red alcohol inks on the felt applicator, added blending solution and stamped on glossy card stock. Added the designs with black Sharpie and a fine line black pen. Added white accents with gesso. I also had done these splatter backgrounds and added ribbon roses and quote stamp.

I love these! I've been playing with alcohol inks this week too. Pictures soon to follow.

You are sure doing some interesting work. I learn so much from you. Not that I ready to dive into alcohol inks, as I'm not even sure what they are. Although the alcohol part sounds good. (hee-hee)
