Angels Landing "For a special Friend" (Alcohol Inks and Opalite)!

Todays post is for Angels, our challenge for today was NO WHITE!!!lol I love this!! Of course we always seem to use white, so this was nice!!! :) Thank you Judi!!! This is another notebook, and of course by now you know I love making them!!Right???? :) LOL
Also for today Im sharing another alcohol ink technique on this darling bear from Angels Landing!

First I picked my colors:
As you can see my tile is a mess!!!LOL that is fine. I used the mustard seed, Ginger and latte upper top where they are running together.
The red you can see, and the LITTLE drop of green is in the middle. I added Alcohol solution to them all. That way the ink wont be soooo dark. I always test to my scrap paper to see what it will look like before it ever touches the image.
I dabb darker around the edges and lighter towards the face. On the bear I used all colors I believe except green. The greein I used for the stem of the flower.

The sponge brush works well too lift any excess ink off of the image! And to add the Opalite to the top of your image. I use both sides:)

Lastly I used the opalite on top of the bear!!
I wanted to take a picture of all products used!

Thank you for looking and have a wonderful day!!!

Another great tutorial, Cheryl. I made a couple of your Post-it Notes covers and matching RSVP pens with two girls, ages 4 and 7. They were totally fascinated with the projects, and we had such a fun time.
