Surf's Up!



I thought I'd have another go at a seascape as I just love the blues in the alcohol ink collection, plus I've now got my inky fingers on the white Snow Cap Mixative.


I used much the same technique as yesterday's post, coating my 200gsm Yupo with blending solution before drizzling streaks of ink ... Aqua, Pool & Stream.
Again I tipped my paper from side to side and puffed the inks about to help some areas to dry quicker & therefore add a kind of texture. I then added the Snow Cap, more blending solution and puffed like crazy. 


Here's a real close of the dried ink..... I think it looks really 'oceany' and that Snow Cap gives a real frothy, white water feel.


To finish, I used a stitched die from MFT to create the framework & a wavy die and sentiment from Clearly Besotted.
Did I mention I love alcohol inks?

Absolutely stunning...the colours remind me of the waters off Tahiti. Love how the white adds the wave caps.
