Day 4 - Monoprint


Using a day 4 technique from T!m's CC102 class I created these two backgrounds using alcohol inks.


I chose to use the pearl metallic which gives it a lovely marble effect in the right light.


And again here at the top in the wild plum.


Over at Fun with Atc's this week they are asking us to use at least 3 stamps.  On this first atc I've used 4 stamps, all from PA.  3 minis and the word is from an Ink and the Dog plate.


And again I used 3 PA minis, but the main image looked too prominent so I took a white posca pen to soften the edges.

Incredibly cool ATCs, Sam. The intense colours are fabulous, and I love that pearly patina. Brilliant stamping, and the white highlighting looks amazing on the second one. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Fun With ATCs.
