Here's my project. I decided to create a Nativity scene with a twist - it's Christmas morning (with a sunrise) rather than the traditional night sky.
The sun was made using one of my first alcohol ink experiments. I am missing the 'official' blending solution and any metallic mixatives, so I used my Delicata Gold re-inker (from AGES ago!) and some rubbing alcohol and made a 'polished stone' background - it has beautiful golden, sunshiney shimmer! I borrowed an idea from Jessica, to use a camera lens cleaner to 'blow' the ink around on the Yupo paper.
I used stamps and dies from SugarPea Designs (also available at today's sponsor, Seven Hills Crafts!)
