How quickly time flies! It's Sunday once more & time for another Crafts for Eternity Challenge. Here's the fab sketch Michele has designed for you.
Your challenge this week is to
1. follow the sketch
2. use an inking technique
3. use something clear
My image is another little cutie from Lili of the Valley. I took the newspaper from the picture & translated it into my backgound. I screwed it up, distressed it with Distress Inks, embossed around the edge & covered it in crackle glaze (that's my 'something clear'). As far as inking techniques go, I have been playing with alcohol inks on high gloss paper. The vertical & horizontal strips were created with Adirondacks of various shades with gold mixative. Unfortunately I have no blending solution to lighten them, so it came out much darker than I hoped, hence I only used strips, rather than the whole background as I had originally intended.
I had lots of fun experimenting with this. In retrospect I wish I had given the whole card a vintage feel. I hope you will give this a go I join this week. Michele is offering another goody bag up as a prize, so what are you waiting for!
How many of you woke up to snow again this morning? Rather unexpectedly, we had about a centimetre, but it's already disappearing. Hope you are having a good weekend.
Thanks for looking.
