Bubbles and blobs. Blobbles, then.
On my workdesk post last week - indeed, on my last post, I had a sheet of vellum with loads of drips on it. This is what I did with it. Funny hting, vellum, it's non absorbent and without a grain, so it never quite behaves as you think it should. I like it. For this, I dripped two colours of alcohol ink onto it. That's all. The white is actually a pearlescent mixative. From the same range. If I owned more than three colours of alcohol ink, I may well have spent the whole afternoon creating these backgrounds, I really like the effect! And better yet, the bits that took a while to dry - heat gun the granny ut of them, they soon dry up and of course, the vellum barely turns a wrinkle.
This card was for a 'backgrounds' workshop, and in the spirit of balance on my blog, I shall add another photo.
Because I can. And this features blobbles too.
These squares are coloured with Copics, and then alcohol blending fluid is sort of dribble/come splashed over the sheet. Then stamped. Rocket science it is not! More learning for me too - if you don't use your Copic collection for ages (prolly 18 months), you should expect the odd one to be a bit dry. Ah well. Learning learning!
