Alcohol Ink Splatters

When the new Technique Junkies newsletter comes out, I am like a kid in a candy store : )  I love being able to use supplies that are sitting on my shelves in a new way!
 So, for my alcohol inks- I used Copic refills and followed the technique instructions. I used the same colors for coloring that I used for the background. The image is from Rare Image Rubber stamps, and the sentiment Create with TLC digi.

I made alot of these backgrounds, both with my limited Copic refill colors and Alcohol Inks- the colors are just fabulous IRL!  I colored the ribbon with a BV02 marker and used Eggplant SU cardstock.

Challenges:
Crafty Ribbon- use ribbon
Inspired by- Color photo inspiration
