Ok, as promised, I'm back!! The Compendium Challenge mistress, Linda sent us to page 57 this time.
But, boy, did I have a deal of trouble with this one!! Lack of supplies, ink not drying.... Let me show you my "cheat" then I'll explain...
First off, I did try to use a fragment, honest!! But could I get the ink to dry? No, I could NOT. No matter what ink I used. And Tim is right, fragments melt if you heat them too much..... just sayin'!
So I resorted to a piece of memory glass instead, which still smudged a bit but at least I could heat it more to dry the ink....
Didn't have the "tools" you need for the technique so (thanks, Alison, for the tip) used a cotton bud to help me.... alcohol inks used are stream and wild plum (wanted to use lighter ones but they didn't show up (told you I'd had problems...)
The stamp is by Stampington and one of my fave favest. The tag inks are broken china and spun sugar.
Oh well, if you don't try, you don't learn. Not sure I'll try this again unless I get some of the "tools"!!
But thanks Linda, as ever!!
