CCC#15 Alcohol Ink Agate on Grunge


Alcohol Ink Agate on Grunge, technique number 15, it too is new to me. I was surprised at the cool metallic effect. I used gold, wild plum, stream, red pepper, and raisin DI's. Fortunately, Gloria at All Things Tim Yahoo group sent me some blank dotted grungeboard, so I used that for the entire tag and stamped Tim's images on an acetate over-tag. Then I added some additional bling to emphasize the metallic look, which didn't photo so well. It was definitely another fun project! Now over to Linda's Studio L3 site to check you all out.

  13. Shelann, this warrants a full on "Ooh LA LA!" It's a gorgeous, vibrant card-- those colors are spectacular!-- and the acetate overlay is such a smart idea. The text really pops but it doesn't detract from the beautiful background. Isn't that dotted grunge cool?

    It's another stunner from you! Well done!
