Monoprint Mess!

Hay there blogland, It's another week, which means another page from The Compendium of Curiosities.
This time its page 51 and 'Alcohol Ink Monoprint'
I say mess in the title for 2 reasons...1st i ended up in a right mess as i didn't remember to put any gloves on so had ink stained hands and the 2nd because most of my efforts with this tecnique ended up as a big mess.. as you can see from my card
It looks a bit faded in the middle for a good reason.. I stamped an image but really wasn't happy with it so i wiped it off and with that took some of the colour from the background... if you look you can still see the dots slightly.. Anyways i did try a couple more backgrounds
But i've not done anything with these yet.
Well I must get back to it.. I have a whole bunch of bunting flags that need my attention..
Oh one more thing b4 i go..I always like to big up companys that give a fab service and If you want a fab, super fast and friendly service when buying your stash then stop by The Altered Element.. not only is the online store filled with wonderious goodies but your order is here almost as soon as you've ordered it {placed mine sunday got it today, and it was all wrapped in purple tissue..like receiving presents} So big thanks to Lynne x And sorry bout the mix up ; )

You say "messy," I say "STUNNING" I think it looks great! Actually, the lighter area in the center almost glows, and that's a beautiful effect. I love your colors, too.

Thanks for sharing the beauty at the CCC, week 3. Hope you'll be back next week for challenge 4.

Hugs,
Linda
