I wanted to share my homework for day 5 of the Creative Chemistry Class. This was my attempt to recreate a look that Tim shared. He used dark alcohol ink colors and created a piece that looked like a vintage negative. The technique is called "Alcohol Ink Stamped Resist on Yupo". Worth taking the class for this alone. Check it out at Here .
I couldn't find the colors that he used so I used the darkest one I owned already. Instead of using a cotton towel like the one he used (being lazy or impatient or both) I grabbed a sponge that was handy in my workspace. I had used the sponge for working with Pan Pastels. It removed the Archival Ink beautifully just like the cloth but.... I noticed a happy accident. The sponge must of had a residue of gold Pan Pastel on one of the sides because it left a gold shadow. I love it. I don't know if I can reproduce the effect, but I think it is a wonderful accident that I will try to make again.
This is the card that I created with the focal art from my homework. The background layer is a sheet of the Textile Surface that I embossed with an embossing folder. I sponged a bit of distress ink over the embossing to make it pop out the detail.
Thanks for dropping in to check my homework. Hope I get a passing grade. You are always most welcome to leave any comments, questions or suggestions.
