Alcohol Ink Christmas Tag

I haven’t played alcohol inks for quite a long time. Were it not for a challenge hosted by Happy Little Stampers with the theme of alcohol inks, I wouldn’t have dug out my AIs and played! Viola. This is what I made. This is also the first Christmas artwork I made this year.

Tag Details

1. Stamp and stencil are by Stampers Anonymous/Tim Holtz.
2. Technique applied – Tim’s signature Alcohol Ink Agate Technique
3. The falling snow was covered by Pearlescent Embossing Paste.

I am happy to re-visit the old trick. Sometimes we just need a little motivation. Haha! Hope you like this tag. Thanks for stopping by.
