Oh how I love Mondays now this is the day Linda posts a new challenge for the Compendium of Curiosities from Tim Holtz book, if you haven't got it get it and join in it is so much fun. Thanks for all the lovely comments you all left last week, will pop over and see what you have all done as soon as I can.

Week 3# Alcohol Ink Monoprint
I love my Alcohol Inks and getting messy is right up my street;  Saying that I'm not very pleased with the results of this technique but had to run with this one, as I ran out of glossy card, note to self  - get some quickly . My inspiration seemed to leave me as I wasn't happy with results so  I have added purple, pink and clear gems for a bit of bling.  Page three of my book complete.  

This is the one I preferred as there is more white showing and the inks are not so muddy, maybe it was my colour choice?

Inks used  Purple twilight,mountain rose, red pepper, willow, stamps Inkadinkado, shape cut Nestabilities labels, Gems from stash

Attempt number 2 same colours and stamps.
Bye for now


  1. Great colours Maggie! x

  2. Maggie, you're being way too hard on yourself! Your monoprints are beautiful! Your color combo is one of the prettiest and most dynamic I've seen, and I love the collage-y stamping and bling you added!

    You did a great job, and I'm looking forward to more of your art. Just a few more days till the next technique!


  3. Yep, I agree with Linda, I love the bright color combination you used and how the stamp follows the swirl.

  4. Wow! I love the stamps you used and the bright colours are fabulous.
    I really like how you layered your stamps on this.

  5. It's a beautiful effect, especially with some of the white showing. Love the colours you've used too.

  6. I think this is lovely and agree with everyones comments. Annette x

  7. Thanks for all your lovely comments they mean so much to me and for boosting my mojo which seems to be off somewhere else - great art from everyone again I keep looking at them all.


  8. Well, I like them both! Love your combination of colours and the stamping just pops off the background - fabulous!

  9. Love the bright colours you've used.

  10. They're BOTH great! I love the one that has a bunch of white peeking here and there!
