So many wonderful monthly challenges have started with the beginning of September! Today I'm joining in with Loll and Bonnie in their CAS Mix Up Challenge.
I decided to try marbling using the floating alcohol ink technique that Loll used - here's a video by Andy Skinner showing the process.
I used Adirondack Inks Sail Boat Blue and Butterscotch on Gloss Paper from Ranger for my background.
I embossed the stamped Psalm from Phrases and Praises set by PTI in black.
I added 3 Wood Veneer stars, adhered the panel to a slightly larger black card panel and adhered that to the white card base with foam dots so it pops up a bit.
I was happy to learn this new technique for marbling - but I found that many of the colors of Alcohol Inks that I have were too light when added to the water. I tried card stock, glossy card and a manila tag - and the tag really took the watered ink the best - I may post another project using the tag soon!
You'll find the CAS Mix up Challenge here.
