Well today turned into a kind of non-productive day! I did get the kitchen cleaned up and some laundry, but that's about it. I am nursing a sore hip & shoulder from our game last night, so that's my excuse. :)
I really wanted to play along with the CAS-ual fridays challenge this week to use rub-ons. I am not super big on them but boy my mom sure had a million. (she was a bit of a hoarder).
So as I was checking out the stash I came across a few that instantly gave me ideas, and then it was final, no more housework!
I am quite happy at how this turned out! I wanted to mist on some ink but that posed a couple of problems, a) I don't have any red/pink mists, b) I don't have any reinkers to create my own. What I do have is lots of Ranger alcohol inks. So I did some Google-ing to see if I could find anything on using alcohol inks. But everything I found said DO NOT use alchol inks to make spray mists.
Well there posed another challenge. BUT i figured if you can add water to water based inks one should be able to add alcohol to alcohol based inks, right?
So thats what I did. I just added the alcohol ink into my little spray bottle then added some Ranger blending solution. I think it worked wuite nicely.
Now I didn't think to check out Jennifer MacGuire's blog, as I am sure she has something on there about it. Oh well!
The rub-on is a Kelly Panacci for Sandylion and I have no idea how old it is!
Thanks for stopping by!
