hello ...

Hi everyone.  A few weeks back I did some experimenting with Alcohol Inks and cling wrap.  Seems that this is technique is very popular right now.

I dropped AIs onto Yupo paper (can't remember the colours, but looks like turquoise, lime and blue).  Then I squirted a little bit of blending solution to get the inks moving.  I took a piece of cling wrap (larger than the piece of Yupo I was working with), crunched it up to create creases, then opened it up and placed it over the wet inks, crunching the cling wrap a bit more to create lots of folds.  I left it to dry overnight.

When I removed the cling wrap, this is the background I got.  Makes for a very interesting background or die-cuts.  I'll definitely be making more pieces with this fun and easy technique.

Oh my goodnes, this background is stunning! Wow! I remember using cling wrap several years ago, but I don't think I ever got into alcohol inks.
