Grungy Monday 13




Hello fellow bloggers! Linda starts her post over at Grungy Monday with "Welcome to the Lucky 13 Edition of Grungy Monday!" Lucky for some! is the title I chose and the technique this week is alcohol ink. Pop over to her blog to see all the inspiration and then on to Tim's video at Ranger to see how to do it from the master!


I used Tim's Bingo embossing folder with the sticky backed foil on card stock and then I used watermelon and pitch black alcohol inks on it. After they had dried, it took my sandpaper to it and took off the ink on the raised bits. The 13 is off another of Tim's embossing folders and I just cut the 13 out and put it on pop dots.


I also used alcohol inks on the domino's which add up to 13 and a little bit on the king card whose value is 13! I had such fun literally playing with all the games parts to create this canvas!

The stars in the background are created using a paper stencil and Perfect Pearls mist, it shows up more in the photos than in real life!

Thanks for looking, I would love to know what you think so please leave a comment if you have time!
