......... always - as I get to do so many things that I really love!
A quick post to share another tag! this time for the Artful Times Challenge which is to use alcohol inks.
I am sorry to say I don't use these as much as I should, so I thought I would have a go at making some largish Vellum flowers using the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Die (it is the spiky one). I used three layers and inked them after cutting using a combination of Cranberry and Red Pepper Alcohol Inks.
After a bit of shaping they looked a bit like poppies so I added three layers of punched stamens and found some grey pearls (why would I have grey pearls ??). Just one word of advice - use thickish vellum as when I tried to shape the leaves with my bone folder, the ones made from thinner Vellum just shattered - the inks must affect the Vellum slightly.
Von has made a very colourful tag with her AInks and Neet an amazing piece of jewellery. Click the link HERE to see these lovely pieces.
Thanks for looking and I hope it is nice and sunny with you as it is here. Very cold, and snow all around us, but not with us ..........
