Rocking Rabbits

There was a question on ABC Yahoo group the other day about alcohol inks. The member and her husband were shopping and he thought they were cool looking. The cost was 3 for $10.00. I have no idea if that is a good price, because I got mine in a starter pack for my birthday one year.

Since I hadn't used them in awhile and NEVER used them with this heavy photo paper, I was eager to try it.

I folded the paper, which is Kodak, and I use HP in my printer, so will probably use these more for other projects.

The starter (or maybe it's called exciter) pack is in the photo. The paper is in the book and ready for AIs.

I have this block that Kathy's husband made. I added the piece of velcro and it works great!

I applied two colors, blue and green, to the felt. It's hard to see on red felt. I have to be careful that I don't mix them together.

I am in LOVE with this technique and with the ROCKING RABBITS that I stamped in pink.

Here they are on the scanner. Yep, I'm tickled with this technique since it made a great and unique spread. After all, how many rocking animals can a person make spreads from???

Too much fun!!!! I have all these inks that I have not used yet, and I'm never happy with my backgrounds. Yours looks awesome. Thanks for showing the way... Sox
