This week's Grungy Monday challenge involves alcohol inks and a plaid ink application. You can find the details on Linda's blog and then hop on over to Tim Holtz's blog for stepped out how-to pics on the application. The alcohol inks dry in no time so this is a pretty quick project.
Each one of these ATCs has a plaid base. I added a few layers of stamping so it may be a bit difficult to see the plaids, but if you double-click on the photo, it's a bit easier.
Trust me... they're there. I used five shades of blue alcohol inks, then stamped over with Manganese Blue and Jet Black archival inks. Because I went with a blue pallete there's little contrast, but the bases are indeed plaid.
The raised letters are Tim's Idea-ology and the small black stickers are Making Memories (I colored them with the Mag Blue, too.) I used black Enamel Accents for the antennae.
Hope you're inspired to try something on your creative 'to do' list... give it a try!
Thanks so much for the visit. Have a great day!
