Week 3's CC challenge was the Alcohol Ink Monoprint. I love using alcohol ink, getting the intense colors, for this piece of art I used the metallic mixative Pearl, which it gave it a more mutes tone. in the picture there are two tags, the one on the left the colors are more intense, however I did not like how I stamped the Mona Lisa. So I did the second.
And now the Alcohol ink Monoprint Mona.
The saying states. . .
"While an original is always hard to find, it is easy 2 recognize."
Stayed tuned for next weeks Challenge.
Be sure to swing by Linda's Blog, Studio L3 to see other great Alcohol Monoprint art work.

I joked with one of my classmates that I was going to do my tag upside down and she said she was going to do hers on the back, well I wasn't joking I did my tag upside down. The butterfly(ies) I did two but Jennie taught it doing one big butterfly, but I had to continue to be different. pearl paint was used and then alcohol ink. for a bright colored wing. I really like this tag!!
Carries Tag was a paint resist, well you really can't see the resist but it is there my choice of background stamp was a little too much detail, and then we painted the sparrow that was texturized using Tim's new embossing folders let it dry and then painted a dark color and wiped off giving it the antique look. Along the side is Tim's new Tissue Tape. Love that Tape.

the background is wrinkle free distress using Pumice Stone, antique Linen, and Old Paper, and of course Walnut Crystals, Embossed using the note book texture/fade embossing folder and then inked the embossed image with Tumbled Glass, The Truck stamped on Grunge Paper with embossing ink/black powder and inked with Rusty Hinge. and the 13 is embossed using a embossing/fade folder on grunge board and inked with Barn door. I love how this tag turned out and I am calling this Tag (the first one that I naming) "a page from Carrie's noteBook!"
