Serenity - Grungy Monday

This week for Linda's Grungy Monday Challenge, she's sending us over to watch Tim Holtz as he demonstrates Adirondack Alcohol Inks. There's so many different ways to use Alcohol Inks, and I already knew I wanted to use a scene image, so I created my background using the Alcohol Ink Mono Printing Technique.

After creating the BG, I embossed the image from the Artistic Outpost Serenity Plate, which happens to fit the Simon Says Stamps and Show a Word Challenge.  Using a SAMJ and the flourish image from this same set, I created the BG on Mustard card stock.
Details:
Stamps - Artistic Outpost Serenity
Ink - Ranger Black Archival, Alcohol Inks Lettuce, Sunshine Yellow, Sunset Orange, Stone Wash
Card Stock - Black, Glossy, Mustard, Olive
Other - Heat Gun, Non Stick Craft Mat, Ink Blending Tool, SAMJ, Blending Solution

This is fabulous! What a great background in alcohol inks. It is perfect for the scenery stamp (gorgeous stamp I must say). And I love your swirls on the second background! Great job with this weeks challenge!
