I've used alcohol ink for years and thought I knew a lot about it, but Cathy blows it outta the water by exploring every single technique you can imagine. Seriously, this book is simply a must have in my opinion.
The photo above depicts two pieces of Yupo where I sandwiched a stencil in between. I started out with one piece of Yupo and covered it was dribbles of alcohol ink. I place the stencil on top and then another piece of Yupo over then brayered the 'sandwich' lightly before pulling the pieces apart.
This photo is a scrap of Yupo where I got this stupendous result and honestly can't remember how. Geez, slaps self in head. But that is the thing with alcohol ink; one you start playing, it is hard to stop. I found myself grabbing at any available paper just to see what would happen. I especially loved the more muted results such as below, this was a ghost print off of another piece.
I am happy to offer a copy of Cathy's awesome book as a prize today! With it you will receive Cathy's two new stencils; she loves trees like I love trees. To enter, leave me a message about alcohol ink and your favorite way of using it cause a girl's gotta know! My fave is the sandwich for sure.
