I is for

Ink
More Ink
Images
Imagination

The last of the 3 alphabet postcards for September.   There is a swap for these running at Lots to do Revisited and mine were finished last evening, they just have to go in the post to Andrea now.

Base card covered with pva glue, alcohol Ink drops on it and left to dry. The glue dried clear leaving coloured spots. Watered down gesso painted over and wiped off. Flower Image stamped with Stayzon which is a solvent based Ink. Little mat cut using Nellie plate and edged with distress Ink. SU Bird stamped in Stayzon onto precoloured card and attached to mat. TH Imagine disk attached with wire. I stamped in Stayzon from the Stampbug set. Finally altered glue, glue squeezed onto plastic bag in lines and spolges Alcohol Ink dripped into wet glue and left to dry. One the glue has completely dried (takes days) it can be peeled off and used. Here a spolge and some of the attached lines have been laid over the postcard and attached ofcourse with glue.
