MC Sept/16 - Alcohol Ink Sky - Here and There - Deep Within was lucky enough to get a whole bunch of photo paper (the kind used in automatic photo printers at our local big box store - Superstore...). Wasn't sure how good it would work since photo paper is not recommended for alcohol techniques. But luckily this paper works beautifully - I think because it didn't have the traditional upper film layer yet, which it gets as it's going through the machine. So it's basically just a glossy paper - I think. Whatever, I'm happy I got so much of it. I can experiment to my heart's content without thinking of the expense of wasting regular glossy paper. So I tried the various techniques I love using with alcohol inks... I'll be giving some to the quilling gals at our next session and maybe doing a bit of a playday... so far I've got 4 cards done with 2 more on my table, so I'll be uploading 1 per day for the next few days BIG GRIN.

I'm using a couple quote stamps from Quietfire Design "Here and There..." and "Deep Within The Winter..."

Oooh, I've scrolled through and your backgrounds with this paper are all gorgeous. This is an interesting sky, just as nature does some interesting things with light and color sometimes. Beautiful scene.
