......is the title of the challenge this week over at the Simon Says Monday Challenge blog!
And, yes, yes I do, thank you for asking!
I used some for the background in this panel...
I used just three colours of Daler Rowney inks (you can find some here). I dripped a little bit onto regular cardstock, squirted with water to make the ink flow slightly, then dried it off. Then I simply repeated this with each colour in turn. Once the card was covered, I brayered over it with white paint, both to tone down the very dark areas, and to give a little texture. When the paint was dry, I went over it in places with more ink, resulting in a layered, inky look....
My image is a nice mixture of very old and very new stamps!
I've printed a few circles, and added an old book phrase just to finish off.
The other great thing about acrylic inks is that they scrub off your hands very easily, so I'm all clean and raring to get going on a Christmas project or two! See you soon!
