Simon Says - Alcohol (Drinks or Inks)

 Hi Everyone...welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog. Thank you for joining us for last week's challenge and we hope you can join us this week too because

and the theme for this week is...
I chose to have a play with Distress Alcohol Inks and Alchemy Alcohol Pearl Ink on a panel of Tim Holtz Yupo White HeavyStock. I used images from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Dearly Departed stamped with Alcohol Lift Ink and Black Soot Distress Archival and added Idea-ology Remnant Rubs and Big Chat Stickers.

I trimmed Yupo White HeavyStock to 5" x 7", added Blending Solution and drops of Cobalt, Stream and Mushroom Alcohol Inks and Alchemy Alcohol Pearl Ink. I moved the inks around with the Distress Air Blower, added more drops of colour and Blending Solution until I was happy with the background.
I stamped the script image from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Dearly Departed, inked with Alcohol Lift Ink, patted with a paper towel, using a clean section each time until no ink appeared on the towel. I stamped the flower and sign images, inked with Black Soot Distress Archival and dried.
I removed the colour from the flower heads using Blending Solution applied with a small paintbrush. I worked in small sections at a time, dabbed with paper towel to remove the ink and wiped off my brush on the towel before I moved on to the next petal. I added Idea-ology Remnant Rubs, which I've had for ages and are now discontinued, sanded lightly to make them look slightly distressed, Idea-ology Big Chat Stickers, also sanded to reveal the white core and splatters of Alchemy Alcohol Pearl Ink.

I trimmed the panel to 4.1/2" x 6.1/2" and fixed to a 5" x 7" sheet of Idea-ology BlackOut KraftStock
