This week's challenge over at Studio L3 is a technique called Faux Patina, and is found on page 58 of Tim's book. This is a fun technique and one of the things that I like about working with Alcohol Inks is that if you don't like your result, you can start over by "erasing" with blending solution, hehe.
I didn't need to erase anything here, but I have to say I did get dabber happy--just pouncing my inks all over! To my altered timepiece, I added a very appropo sentiment as well as a couple of mini butterflies. Yep, those little black specks are butterflies! I cut them with Tim Holtz's mini butterfly Movers & Shapers die from Ranger's Shrink Plastic, heated 'em up and shrunk 'em down, then colored them black with alcohol ink. So cute and teeny!!
I am entering this tag in the Studio L3: Compendium of Curiosities, Challenge 2.
