Today for the Grungy Monday challenge, Linda has challenged us to use Alcohol Inks as beautifully demonstrated here by Tim in a video for Ranger.
Now, I love AI's and have - erm - lots - but don't use them that often as I am never happy with the results (my fault, not that of the inks)
However, today I had another go - used 3 colours - oregano, sunshine yellow and sunset orange - with gold metallic, and for once I like the result! I used Tim's large and small butterflies randomly over the AI background. 'nature' is one of Wendy's stamps, 'to dream..' is a very old Penny Black one.
Normaly on a Monday I combine this with theSimon Says challenge but it is too hot to think clearly today and I will do something else for that, hopefully soon!
