This is a bit of a combination of things today. I made these pages for Santtu’s book for the Stamping Mad Book Swap for July 2008. Her theme was ‘Winged things’. When the page arrived I was stuck for what to do with it as it was plain book board! Yikes! Then I remembered reading http://isascrapandstamp.wordpress.com/2008/04/10/new-technique-alcohol-inks-metallic-paint/
and I had some gold and silver metallic paint dabbers so I gave it a try.
Here is how the pages turned out.
And side two…
It was scary to craft outside of my comfort zone but once I got into it, I loved it. I have made another one on a smaller scale for myself that I’ll make a book out of sometime. I am also putting this forward as my piece for this months challenge under;
The Virtual Crafting Challenge as the theme was Inks 2, and included solvent and alcohol inks ;)
