Just wanted to share this little tip today. I am sure you all know how much I love Tim Holtz Adirondack Color Wash ink by Ranger....there are so many great techniques you can do with it. Here's a little something to try...
1. Gesso your surface and let it dry. Mine is my art journal (a watercolor Moleskine).
2. Spray some Wild Plum (or Purple Twilight) Adirondack ink onto your surface. Be generous with the ink...you want a lot of pigment there.
3. Take a wet paintbrush and move the ink around the page. You could even dilute it a bit and let the ink run like I did.
4. Let the purple ink dry completely.
5. Grab your Butterscotch ink and a calligraphy dip pen. Dip the pen in the Butterscotch ink and tap off excess. Write with the pen & ink right over the dried purple area. As the Butterscotch ink dries, it takes on a glowy quality that looks so cool!
6. Grab a stencil and your Butterscotch ink and add some stenciling (spray, and blot with one pass of a roll of paper towels). Cool, eh?
This will be a background for a future art journal page. I just love the way the Butterscotch ink interacts with the Wild Plum ink...stunning! Let me know if you try it!
