"T" Technique ATC

We're up to the letter "T" in our ABC's of Techniques ATC swaps in the Art-Ventures group. I'm using the Twisted Alcohol technique for the background. Placed Copper Mixative Metallic and assorted colors of alcohol ink on a craft sheet, then squirted on alcohol blending solution.
 Placed glossy card stock down in the inks and twisted several times before lifting off the card stock.
 There was still ink on the craft sheet, so I squirted on more blending solution and used more glossy card stock, to pick up the inks for a future project.
 After the inks had dried, stamped a tree image with black archival ink.
 Used a toothbrush to splatter more of the copper Metallic Mixative over the backgrounds.
 Stamped an autumn flourish over the background with sepia Archival Ink.
 Next "T" technique, Taped Off Stamping. Used masking tape to cover areas of a stamp I don't want to stamp on the card. Ink over with black Archival ink, remove the tape then stamp on the background.
 I used this same technique to tape off another area of the same stamp to stamp on the card with black Archival ink. I like how this technique creates a more collaged look of a stamp.
 To finish the ATC, I "T"aped on some black ribbon and "T"ied on some fibers.
