Alcohol Inks and . . . Sellotape?

I've had a few strange looks about this one but it's FAB! I was demoing alcohol inks for Paddy (from Paddy's Stamping Place) at Port Sunlight last Saturday so spent the week before playing with the inks. I also decided to make one of the bird cages by Gail Milburn from May's Craft Stamper and that's how I had my eureka moment!

There was still some sellotape left on the roll and so I decided to use the alcohol inks on it. I'll post a piccie when I get a working camera. Well, that set me off on strips of sellotape...

How gorgeous is that!! Use instead of ribbon on a card and/or layer over inked backgrounds. Yummy! Watch this space for a card or ATC using this technique :)

But while you're waiting...

Here's part of an ATC I made for the show (sorry, image is scanned so slightly awry!). Alcohol inks overstamped with co-ordinating pigment ink for background, and overstamped with white embossed image. Bird stamped on blue alcohol inked card.
