America The Beautiful
http://quietfire.ning.com/group/createdbyhandchallenge/forum/topics/fireworksmetallics-1 this week is fireworks/metallics which gave me the perfect excuse to pull out my alcohol inks which I haven't used in a while. I also used some glossy paper which I haven't used in a very long time. Glossy paper, alcohol inks, and metallic inks is an excellent combination for a shimmery background. I didn't have any fireworks stamps or pictures so I used some of my Tim Holtz idea-ology Salvage Stickers - Seasonal collection. I first used pool colored alcohol ink with Silver metallic ink (Ranger Inks) with my applicator and dabbed it all over my glossy paper. I then added my stickers. I first went over with Barn Door red and used perfect pearls blue sapphire. I then painted liquid white pearls over the entire image. I finished it off with True Blue Stickles and Icicle Stickles (Ranger Ink).
