Here ends a week without internet at home! I think some internet free time is definitely a good thing but I’d rather it be planned than thrust upon me.  One happy outcome is the stack of edited photos I have ready to slot into blog posts.

This one is an alcohol ink on yupo panel. The abstract panel has been sitting in my ‘pile of possibility’ for some time so I don’t remember which colours of ink I used. Just guessing though, I would say pool and juniper but I might be wrong about juniper. There’s a blue and a green for sure, possibly two blues. I used opaque yupo paper but it is still worthwhile to back it with white cardstock to keep the colours bright so I did that before matting it with teal.

I stamped the fern from Darkroom Door’s Wilderness Vol 2 set. It is a lovely delicate image. I used stazon ink on the yupo and it spread ever so slightly but as you can see not enough to lose the fine detail of the stamp. At first I didn’t have a sentiment but the white space below the panel did look a bit empty so I added a simple thank you. Stamps and inks are linked below.


Stamps: wilderness vol 2, thank you (Darkroom Door)
Inks: pool & juniper alcohol inks (Ranger) blue Hawaii stazon, deep lagoon versafine (Tsukineko)
Papers: opaque yupo, neenah solar white cardstock, teal cardstock

    I love your idea of stamping on alcohol ink drip painting. So organic! Great choice of colors. I have some alcohol painting that I’m going to try this on . Thank you for the inspiration, once again.

    I love the colours Heather and an interesting finish using alcohol inks and yupo, but as you say the Stazon has kept the ferns very distinct which is good.
