Alcohol Ink Backgrounds
This first one is a mix of Stonewashed, Bottle and Terracotta. Using Marvy Matchables black ink, I stamped Stampscapes Lakeside Cove, Tall Peak and then framed the scene with Cattails large and Prickly Branches. Using these type of backgrounds make for very fast scenes.
For the next one, I decided to try one of my Copic reinkers. So this is a mix of Stonewashed, Bottle and RV04. The Copic ink worked exactly as the Adirondacks did. Then I stamped Stampscapes Old Mill large and frame the top of the scene with Twisting Leaves small. I added Duck Trio in Flight and I was done.
I used glossy paper from The Paper Cut. And I applied the color with the Tim Holtz Alcohol Ink Applicator, using blending solution as well. Finished size is 4.25 x 5.5 inches.
