Whatever Makes You Happy
Even the name, alcohol ink splatter, sounds like fun (and it is). Oh, yes, I've done this one before, many times, in fact. I think it is addictive. As for whatever makes me happy......autumn makes me very happy. Absolutely my favorite season. I know for many spring signals new beginnings. For others it might be the start of a new year in January. But for me, autumn = new. That's probably because I spent most of my life in school, first as a student, then a teacher, and the new school year begins in September. Whatever the reason, I love this time of year.
So, here is my dual entry in today's challenges:
I actually used the technique in two different ways. For the tag I followed the directions in the book exactly, stamping over the AI splatter background with Tim's Falling Leaves set (black archival ink). Then I did a second background and cut the leaves from it. I stamped over some of the cut leaves with the Falling Leaves set again (using olive archival ink) to get the veining. No, the leaf stamps and leaf die cuts don't match up perfectly, but it works.
The word "autumn" is from Tim's new seasonal Salvage Stickers, and I sanded and inked it up a bit, and adhered it with pop dots for some dimension.
