Alcohol ink resist

I just had to try this technique that Tim Holtz showed this month. I always have my alcohol inks around me as I love them! I use Rangers and some from Kuretake too(they have very bright colours). I used a couple of fragments, and a domino to try it out, and was rather pleased with the results. I feel a bigger project coming on...... The pics look rather big, but they are 1 inch squares from the fragments pack. Interesting technique when gluing with the glossy accents- use very very little as it kind of moves the alcohol ink on the glossy paper...another technique I think
Stamps used Daisy, and one of the clocks from The Artistic Stamper.
