Rhonda's Rowdy Rascals over at Squigglefly are doing the challenge this week. Rhonda challenged us to use some type of liquid on our cards. Wow, I have struggled with this one for about four days.
I water colored a image and it was a no go. I got out my Tim Holtz alcohol inks and I sponged about 6 sheets of glossary paper before I got one I liked. Then to find just the right image to go on it was a little challenge, but I decided on this Squigglefly image by Gayle Seach. I colored it with blue and gray copics and added my Cottage Cutz trees. Now that it is done, it was worth the effort and thanks, Rhonda, for this encouragement to use my inks again. Kathy and I played with them over the weekend so I got to have more fun with them.
Thanks, for stopping by today. I hope you will stop in at the blog to see what the other gals have done and we would love to have you join us for this challenge. Happy April Fool's day everyone.

Shirley, this is stunning! LOVE, love, love the background and this image is perfect. You have coloured it beautifully! I haven't worked with alcohol inks in awhile but when I get the hang of them, they are so much fun. The beauty is, if you don't like how something is turning out you just add different colours or blending solution!!ReplyDelete
