Favourite Technique...(at the moment!!)

I am sooooo glad that this weeks challenge theme at the Stampotique Designers Blogspot is all about incorporating your favourite background technique, because this week I have just started playing around with alcohol inks on acetate!!!...I wonder why I haven't done it before now!! but I absolutely love it, even the frustrating randomness of it is quite appealing!!, I get the same feeling with the Brusho's color crystals, they are quite unpredictable but I am learning to control them to a point!!! even tho I like that they seem to have their own mind. Anyways, like I said, I have just started playing with my alcohol inks on acetate and just lovin the results, all very different, all gorgeous. I even run a couple of the acetate squares through an embossing folder before I dripped inks onto it, and I love that too. I have had my alcohol inks sitting in the drawer now for ages and ages not really sure what to do with them, but, I tell all of a sudden I have to go for fresh supplies and new colors.....somebody stop me!!!!! LOL...all my crafting friends will understand.  I attached my inked up piece of acetate onto another Stampotique stamped background, journey collage, with tiny brads, then added the small butterfly stamp with stazon ink.


  1. Wow! This is beautiful with its bright colors against the text background. The black butterfly is the perfect contrasting element.
