18th Day of Advent

Firstly I have to thank everyone for commenting on my postings. I would love to give everyone candy, but I do hope that you are enjoying what I am doing, and will continue to follow after Christmas. Today's winner is
Congratulations, and selection of flowers and ribbons will be wingng their way to you when you email me your snail mail address.
 I had very little time to create today's tag, and it shows! But the idea is there. I found this idea on Tim Holtz's blog, in his 12 Tags of Christmas( Day 6). I put a little bit of several colours of alcohol ink into a palette and let it dry. Then I filled a Sakura Water Brush with Alcohol ink blender, and re-wet the dried ink. I painted the embossed tag ( which is embossed on glossy paper) with the re-constituted alcohol ink, and blended the colours. It is not my best work as I did it in a hurry, but it gives you an idea you may not of thought of before. I love alcohol inks, and this to me was new way of using them.I hope you like.
Today's candy  is a bottle of alcohol ink each for THREE bloggers, so post away and if you are not a follower become one to have a bigger chance of winning!
