Art Is Knowing Which Ones To Keep

I've been wanting to try this technique for awhile and never got around to it.  Fortunately, I'm on vacation!  So, cleaning day turned into crafting day!

I made the following card - for no reason whatsoever:

 

The card base is Adirondack glossy paper mounted on Papertrey Ink's True Black cardstock. I used Adirondack Alcohol Ink to make the background.  Colors: Butterscotch, Stream, Purple Twilight, Sunset Orange, Wild Plum, Sunshine Yellow, Watermelon, Sail Boat Blue, and Citrus.


The butterfly stamp is from Unity's January KOTM and the flourishes are from Unity's Growing In Unity set.


 The sentiment is Tim Holtz.  Hindsight - I should've stamped on lighter colors.

Thanks for looking!

  4. This reminds me of some of my makeup palette cases from Urban Decay. Very cool! Is it messy working with the ink?
