CC2C - Like a bit of alcohol.....ink!

Hello Friends

Linda over at StudioL3 has asked us this week to turn to page 59 of the Compendium of Curiosities 2  and following the instructions there make our creation.  I cannot tell you the techniques used but I can tell you it involves alcohol ink.  So here is mine......

I used the 1.5" Memory Glass and frame to make a double sided piece for my Christmas Album that I am currently making, which piece I want to hang on the spine of the book.  Here is the other side.....
I used Terracotta, Red Pepper, Cranberry and Black alcohol inks all by Ranger and then two of Mr T!m Holtz's lovely Christmas stamps to create the pattern with Archival ink.   The frame is also by Ranger and you are not seeing double with the link on the top, I have already added a jump ring to enable me to hang the frame when it is ready! There is also Snippets of metal foil in between the glass so that you can see the stamped patterns nicely.

And just so you can see my Christmas Album in creation (not finished yet), I can show you the undecorated cover with a few other embellishments I want to use on the cover/spine of it....
Thanks for popping by and please leave me a comment.  There is still time for you to join in with this Challenge as you have until Thursday evening.  I am quite surprised that we are on Challenge 24 this week!  It doesn't seem that long ago we started on the first Challenge!  I do love these challenges so thanks Linda!

Don't forget to call in at Mr T!m Holtz's blog for more wonderful ideas and creations.

Gorgeous alcohol ink pendant Sam!! Love the colours that you have used and the fact that it is double-sided. It will be just beautiful dangling from the spine of your Christmas book! Looking forward to seeing that as well!

Wow - absolutely gorgeous use of the technique... the one-and-a-half-inchies look just glorious! Brilliant colours, and then the ghostly, frosty images are wonderful!

I love that you used the red! I can't wait to see the album finished. Maybe that will kick me to get my Christmas Altered Book going! And now I'm thinking ornaments...how much memory glass do I have??? Hmmmm...

I love that you used the memory glass with this technique! Hmmm...I think I have some of that somewhere. Now I'll have to find it!
