Here are my tools from my Sunday art. A heart punch, metal tape (used for heating or something), alcohol inks (by Tim Holtz - Ranger) and embossing plates (or anything else around the studio I could find to emboss with)
I never worked with alcohol inks before. It was on my to-do list and I had bought them a while ago, because I had a coupon. Well, was it ever fun. (I was supposed to be cleaning off my table) Did I ever tell you that I am the Queen of getting sidetracked? Well I am, and I am always being reminded of that. But my philosophy is if I clean it all up then I won't be able to find it again and why not just do it now? The art I mean. So I do and I don't feel guilty because I am creating. Now that I have that off my chest.....back to the art.
Another thing I do is always keep the paper that I am working on. The one under the art being made. It looks messy but when you re-use it to stamp out shapes it looks really good and you can always add on to it using rubber stamps and other embellishments. It's on the top of the page and I can't get it to come down here.I forgot to mention that alcohol inks are used for slick surfaces such as metals and plastic's.
Well, the wheels started turning last night and I went on to use these inks on other things. I am not pushing my luck with downloading too many things at one time, soooo.......more tomorrow.
