CHALLENGE 3 ALCOHOL MONOPRINTS PART 2




Hi,

After my first effort on using this technique, I tried again today, with different results. Its amazing you just don't know whats going to happen, this has been a real adventure for me. So hopefully I will be able to enter another one, not sure what the rules are, but I thank you Linda for getting me started on this. Have craft mat on order, in the meantime I took the advice of other crafters who left me advice on my first one and it really helped a lot, thank you.......shan't use a placky bag again......what was I thinking, daft or what.......no don't answer that...... lol
Not sure which one to enter, but have to choose...mmmmm I think the Cat one, I've called it 'Waiting' and the other one 'Lost in the Forest'. I have used the same forest background stamp from ISC, the cat and dragonfly were freebies from Craft Stamper Mag and the girl is from Inkadinkado.

Hope you like them as am addicted now......... Thank you for popping in and all comments and advice are very welcome. Enjoy the rest of the day, now am off to blog hop and see what my lovely friends have made today. Annette x

Annette, I love your monoprint kitty card! I would hang that on my wall-- it's wonderful! Thanks for sending another beautiful work of art for the Compendium Challenge! I don't know if InLinkz will accept two from the same address, but I'll see if I can link it from my side.

Hugs,
Linda

Linda Ledbetter said...

Oh! Meant to say that I also love the little girl card-- it's gorgeous, too. (I'm such a cat lover I just fixated on the kitty!).

Doreen said...

joanne wardle said...

wow!!!! that is stunning!! I love the first one so much, the colours the style, WOW!!!
and you are right about coughing on flower soft, dropping the open pot isn't a good idea either, mind you not as bad as the time I opened my perfect pearls the wrong way up!!!!

Beverly Gotthardt said...

Both cards are great, but on your cat one you got the colors placed just right for lights and shadows, or was that a happy accident? :-)You'll really like the craft mat.

Lisa Somerville said...

Just beautiful! The Mono Prints looks wonderful with the ISC trees!

Zoechaos said...

Stunning you are so clever and sorted this with bags of style to spare! Think the second one is my fav very woodland on a summers day but then cats are just so special... Love them both. xx Zoe

Meggymay said...

Both are super, the cat would be my favourite, fantastic colours as well.

scrappyjacky said...

These are just wonderful....just love the colours....and the first one has such a magical feel to it.

Esther said...

Oh my goodness..these are stunning, I love the cat, that forest stamp is just gorgeous and the placement of the colours is spot on...see they say practice makes perfect (not that you were far off with your first attempt it was that darned plastic bags fault!)...I too love this technique so understand your addiction - just waiting for restock of my glossy card! Esther xx

Annika said...

Oh, those should hang on the wall!! Preferably on MY wall!! lol
BTW Netty, I have couple of little things that are sitting with no use here and I'm FAIRLY sure they'd be a lot happier in your craft room. I bought them when I was still trying to figure out what my style was and they should be a lot more down your alley. Cause I'm useless with stuff like that. My email is on my blog side bar, I'm not a mad stalker, honest. Just would love to see things in happy home. :)
Hugs
Annika

Rosietoes said...

Here we go again. I tried earlier but was cast out!

Stunning work Netty. You are producing fantastic stuff at the mo. What are you on and can I have some? LOL :)

BTW you don't have to worry about catching me as I bounce high into the sky - I refuse to trampoline!

Jules said...

Hi Nettie

I am in catching up mode at last and what lovely creations I have missed from you.

You are doing really well with your inks .. .. I got a craft sheet from the cooking section of our local Poundsaver shop. Great value for money.

I hope that I can make something that looks as good as you are making once I get to use it.

Love Jules xx

Sandi M said...

Netty - these are stunning! The woods stamp - ISC - what is ISC? That's a great stamp.

Brenda Brown said...

Ooooh I just love these Annette - I have the cat stamp but also have a black cat and a very dark brown cat - both brothers. Now I want to get home and have a go at the challenges - I love TH and have got the compendium.
Beautiful work.
Luv Bxxx
