Alcoholic Wine (My Favourite)


Good morning ladies,

Today's wine features an alcohol ink background. Another one, I could easily give to a number of blokes I know. The photo does not show up all the subtle metallics so well, but you get most of it. I like this one so much, it may have to remain as part of my show pieces! DH has already spied it and is thinking to whom he can give it .... Not happening boyo!

I always find it amazing with alcohol inks that the piece you make can sometimes look yuck....until you stamp something on it...and then the WOW factor settles in.

I am really enjoying showing this stamp in so many different lights (....even if the photo stage is poxy. My camera does NOT like gloss card!) I still have two more to go. DH is disappearing to play blueball for the arvo! Sweet!

I am wondering if Gracie has spied these yet? Where are you Grace? Know you are there somewhere and even in my time zone now you southern states are done with daylight saving!
