Grungy Monday: Tim Holtz alcohol ink techniques
Simon Says Stamp and Show: a word
Everything Wendy Vecchi Making Art!: red, white and blue
And here is my piece.....and a Happy Fourth of July to all!
For the alcohol ink technique I did the splatter, which is what you see on the bottom layer. You're supposed to use compressed air, but I couldn't find the can in my stash, so I blew through a straw instead. Maybe not as much fun, and I think I collapsed a lung, but it worked well enough.
The next layer features one of my favorite images, Lady Liberty, a Viva Las Vegas stamp. I used a little flourish/flower stamp from Wendy Vecchi's Botanical Art set around the edges. That stamp has always reminded me of fireworks, so it seemed appropriate. I used two of the new archival ink colors: vermillion and manganese blue. That takes care of the red, white and blue portion of our program.
As for "show us a word," well, I showed a few, but used Jenni Bowlin mini stickers to spell out LIBERTY. The sentiment on the bottom is from Wendy's Evidence of Art set.
And since I'm using this piece as a way of wishing you all a happy and safe Independence Day, I'm thinking I actually accomplished a fourfer, or maybe let's just call it a quad.
Take care, and I'll be back as soon as I can!
