Book Study - Alcohol Ink Monoprint

On NGS group, we are studying Tim Holtz's book "A Compendium of Curiosities". This week is the section "Alcohol Ink Monoprint". Squirt, dribble, or scribble an assortment of alcohol inks onto a craft sheet.
Apply a drop of metallic ink in the center.
Sprinkle on a small amount of Blending Solution.
Place glossy card stock, glossy side down in the ink, swipe through the ink. Working quickly, re-swipe the paper through the inks again, changing directions. As the alcohol inks dry quickly, the ink should create layers of colors, not muddying of the colors.

Here's my sample. Fun!There was still some ink on my craft sheet, generously added more Blending Solution and used a new piece of glossy card stock to pick up these colors.

Thanks for reminding me of a technique that I have had fun with in the past. Off to the "grotto" to play (too hot to do anything else!"
