Compendium challenge week 7...

Posted by Picasa
Well here is my attempt at this week's challenge. It
involved alcohol ink which I always have a hard time
with, and it took a couple of attempts to get the
alcohol ink to not disappear after I had applied it,
then I saw little strands from the felt and tried to
remove them, not fun!
If you would like to play along go and visit the
lovely Linda to see what it is all about.

On another note, I have the cheap Michaels version of the
stamp set with the Eiffel Tower I used on this and every
time I use it I can never get it inked well enough to stamp
a good image. I have to try to stamp over it which never
exactly lines up. Am I the only one who is having issues
with this stamp set ?

Now that is pretty cool! Love the eye and the sentiment!

Netty said...

This is terrific, love that eye looking out. Annette x

Marlene, this is so cool! The eye peeping out from the Fragment is so clever, and the background image is soft enough to really let the technique shine! Beautiful!!!

I've had problems with craft store stamps not taking ink very well, too, but then a friend told me that if you stamp them several times onto scratch paper with a black dye ink, then clean off the stamp, it will ink up better from then on. I don't know why, but it seems to work!

I like the eye and the quote and . . . well, I like your CCC #7 piece :)

Carolyn said...

Ohhh..WOW....love this one, Marlene. The eye is the perfect image for this technique. I see you also like the die cut from Tim. I purchased it too and enjoy it a lot.

love the eye beautifully framed with the fragment. Great colours. Tracy x

Great piece Marlene! Love the "eyeball"! lol "Looks" great, hahaha. No, really, it is a fab piece, can't help with the stamp, I only have one of those sets, and it's not that one, but I haven't had an issue with it...
