Alcohol inks on acetate



Another attempt at using alcohol inks, this time on acetate.  The ink more or less does it's own thing, which may be a blessing as Mrs Mojo is AWOL at the moment!

Here's how I made the inked panel:

1. Drip ink onto the acetate (I used purple, aqua and red).
2. Apply blending solution to a felt paid on an applicator and dab onto the inks lightly.
3. Add more inks if required and dab again. Repeat until desired effect is achieved.

I've added a die-cut frame and flowers and stamped sentiment. That's it!

Love the way the alcohol inks do their own thing. The pinky purple background looks fab against the white die cut and frame.
