CCC Week 15...

Here we are at week 15 already! time flies when you are having fun :)
Go to Linda's blog to get details of this weeks challenge and
while youhaare there look at all of the great entries that have
already been posted for this week.

I enjoyed the technique but found that I could not stamp on
top of the alcohol inks very well, perhaps I was using the
wrong inks for that?

Anyway I used grunge board as the base, followed by the
technique (it's a secret, if you want to know go and buy
the book). I used some of Tim Holtz tissue tape along the
bottom and then used something new, a Tattered Angels
Foil chip. This has a foil resist on it which when you spray
a mist over it resists the colour, kind of a cool effect.

It is really fun trying all these techniques every week, some I
have done before but I have found more of them that are
new things for me. Thanks to everyone for all the kind
comments along the way and also for the great suggestions
I had on how to display my pieces of art.

Oh, this is COOL, Marlene! I'd been wondering about those foil chips, and now I most definitely want to get some. What a pretty and dramatic effect! Your AI Agate background is gorgeous-- the green and gold combo is a knock out! The tissue tape is a great touch, too.

I think your stamping looks really good, actually! I had trouble getting the ink to show up on the background, too, but I think that just adds to the "grunge factor" of this technique!
