CC#3C - Alcohol Ink Ombre

Hello to all of you wonderful crafty people and I hope you are doing great! Yes, I am still having Internet issues and until Verizon actually makes the much needed repairs, this will be ongoing! Just trying to edit a picture is so frustrating when you do whatever changes and go to save and then the "page is not available" and that is why I am lacking on blog visits! OK, enough of my problems with Verizon and just know that I am still looking and enjoying your wonderful artwork! Really I am!
I decided to work my Artistic Outpost Generation Redux and Flower Market stamps right into Linda's CC#3C lesson, "Alcohol Ink Ombre," on page 57 of the Compendium of Curiosities III. Tim's book is amazing and to play along you must work from  your own copy! The wonderful sponsor this time around is the Funkie Junkie Boutique and of course there is always sometime from Tim and Mario as well, chosen by that lovely and talented Curiosity Crew! I decided I would go with a tag and used the more pastel colors of alcohol inks and although I can't share the technique, I can tell you that I used Mountain Rose and Salmon!

Thank you for visiting me today and especially that I have been lacking and hopefully this will all be resolved soon.

Lovely stamps. Love the photo corners and black borders for your tag. The Mountain Rose and Salmon make your Ombre a beautiful backdrop for your images.

Hi Terry. Your tag is awesome! Love the ombre blends of alcohol ink colors you've used! Very pretty background. And your stamped images in black really pop off of the tag. Great job...as always! Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such a sweet comment, too. Have a fantastic weekend and thanks for sharing your art with us at CC3C. <3 Candy
