Compendium of Curiosities Challenge Week Three

This week at Linda's challenge we are playing with alcohol.  The challenge is Alcohol Ink Monoprint.  Now when I started this, I had "wings" on my mind to kill two birds with one stone, so to speak.  Gingersnap Creations is having a wings challenge, but after I saw the end result, I had to go with the fishes!  Maybe added a little to many images, but I could not help myself!
This was a really fun technique!  Thanks for stopping by!

I think it is fabulous! With just the right amount of images! Isn't great when a piece "tells" us what it needs to be?

How pretty, the background turned out wonderfully for your Ocean.

I love it, Terry, and I don't think you added too many images at all! Your oceanic background is just perfect! Wow, those colors look great together! You were wise to use the undersea stamps-- they're exactly right for this monoprint (and you can always whip out another for the Wings Challenge at Gingersnaps!).

Thanks so much for rocking the CCC, Week 3!

Hugs,
Linda
