Alcohol ink resist

Yep, it's time for another Compendium of Curiosities Volume 2 challenge sponsored by the lovely Linda over at Studio L3.  When I've tried this technique in the past I was less than pleased with the results.  But I think I found the secret...don't keep pouncing the ink!  And you need a lot of ink.   More is definitely better for this technique.

Stamps:  Falling Leaves, Calendar 2 (SA); sentiment (Serendipity)

Ranger:  Jet Black archival ink; Butterscotch, Terra Cotta, Red Pepper alcohol inks; shrink plastic; numerous brown & Black Soot distress inks

Sizzix/TH:  Ticket die, mini heart, mini acorn dies; Autumn Gatherings strip die

Kraft Core'dinations

Miscellaneous fibers, sewing machine stitched

I'm already thinking of a wintry about you?
