Alcohol Ink Monoprint

This week, Studio L3 focuses on the Alcohol Ink Monoprint technique explained in Tim Holtz “Compendium of Curiosities”. Here’s my take!

I used Adirondack alcohol inks lettuce, stream and wild plum to create to background. I also tried to give it extra texture by stamping “suds” (Stamp Camp) with versamark, but unfortunately the scan doesn’t show this.
I made a collage using the following stamps:

  • Beauty Muse (Cherry pie)
  • Butterfly (Artistic Stamper)
  • Mystery (Lost Coast Design)
  • Definition “Beauty”(Stamp Camp)
  • Art (Darkroom Door)
  • Mosaic (Stampers Anonymous).

The edge of my ATC was coloured using a copper paint dabber.
