Alcohol Inks and Clingfilm

Welcome back to Alcohol-Inks-Anonymous.
Today's creation was made with a piece of 110sm Yupo cut down to about 4"x4".
I used the lighter weight, cheaper Yupo as I was going to be moving the inks myself.

Now for some reason my camera has completely changed the colours of the inks in the photo above. I slooshed blending solution across my Yupo and then added streaks of Raspberry (which bizarrely photographed as red!!??), Purple Twilight, Snow Cap & Silver.

I then covered the Yupo with clingfilm, scrunched it up and set it aside for 24hrs. 

After 24hrs, I carefully peeled away the clingfilm and set it aside again fo finish drying. What you're left with is a crackled look, which if you do with blues can look like ice or with greens, like foliage. It's such a beautiful effect.

To finish I used MFT's Inside & Out Stitched Square Stax and a landscape die from Memory box. The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted.

Oooo!! You got such a nice result with this one! Very pretty!

My camera has an issue with colors but it is with yellows. It wants them to look super neon when they aren't. TFS!

Jane, I have just recently found your blog and am loving what you're doing with alcohol inks. I have lots of them which have been sitting unused, both Ranger and Pinatas and you've inspired me to get them out again and use them. Thanks for the inspiration.
