Artful Times Alcohol inking

Think I just made this challenge over at Artful Times Neet is asking for
"Alcohol Inking" I think my mojo is frozen solid with all this cold snowy weather, as I phaffed around with all sorts of things and couldn't get it to work. Eventually I made myself a little keyring (always useful) it is a wooden tag shape and I painted it with pearl acrylic then used cool peri, stream, and a bright colour with silver metallic and dabbed it all over to get this lovely colour mix. The technique is from TH Simple but effective. If you haven't already then do look at Neet and Von's projects they are very good. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Hugs Sandra X

A delightful little keyring Sandra with a lovely mix of colours on it. You have given me an idea now so I must dash and get my inks out again.
