Oh who am I kidding, I can't resist alcohol period! LOL! Wow, it’s week #24 at Studio L3’s Compendium of CuriositiesVol. 2 challenge!! And this week Linda has challenged us with page #59 of Tim’s fabulous book, Alcohol Ink Resist. And as I’m working on cards for a holiday craft fair, I worked on a Christmas theme, which also fits into the Creative Chemistry 101 Facebook Challenge for October, which was using any of Tim’s techniques with a holiday theme.
I used re-purposed packaging for my base, and while I can’t mention any specifics in fairness to Tim, I can pass on an important tip…when working with the plastic packaging, beware pet hair!!! I almost had my own felts to use with the alcohol inks!! I used the Tim’s baroque sizzix die, and colored the chickadee with Distress Markers. (and note to self…cut the paper first!) The stamp is from Impression Obsession, as is the stamp I used on the resist technique which is one of the Cover-a-card stamps. As I didn’t want the overlay to be too dark, my resist is very subtle, but overall I kinda like it. Not sure about the back card color, but I think this will be a design for this year as well.
So jump over to Linda’s to see what others have done with this fun technique. And don’t forget to check out Friday when a new challenge will be issued!
