Alcohol Ink Monoprint

Studio L3 is hosting several weeks of challenges based on Tim Holtz techniques from his recent book 'Compendium of Curiosities'. As a Tim Holtz fan, I purchased this book as soon as it came into print. The challenge this week is based on using the Alcohol Ink Monoprint technique from this book.




 This is the card I submitted for the challenge, using  Ranger alcohol inks in Denim, Stonewashed, Slate and Metallic Silver. The stamps are from Artistic Outpost, which happen to be one of my favorite stamp companies these days.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you're gearing up for a wonderful holiday weekend.

This turned out great, Julie! I love the double matting and stamp collage you did!

Julie, this is lovely! The colors are just perfect for the sweet imagery you used (AO makes such awesome stamps, don't they?!!), and your lacy edge really sets off the photostamp nicely.

I'm so happy you joined the challenge and I hope you'll be back on Monday for week 4!
