Alpha Trinchie...

 
This time with the letter C. I decided on the word 'Create'. So wasn't held back by anything and just went for it! I began with the background of my 3" x  3" trinchie and added a very small amount of matt medium with a palette knife. Once dry I inked using some bright colours from a Kaleidocolor ink pad, the matt medium acts as a slight resist. I added some water droplets which pulled off some of the ink.

 
I then added some Gelatos around the edge to add some intense colour. Over stamped with my floral sprig stamp with the Kaleidocolor inks. Once dry, I rubbed the image away on top of the resist area. Out came the Black Staz on ink and overstamped.  Some oddments which I had used to test my ideas out became my 'Create' quote and was layered up with some black net material and of course that tiny little black safety pin.
 
 
This Trichie was designed for:
The Craft Barn: Alpha challenge C
The Corrosive Challenge: Put a Pin on it!

  22. It absolutely gorgeous, and the colours are truly beautiful too.
    It needs to have a dictionary definition... and/or a single C letter on there too to enter our challenge ;)
    You don't have to alter a dictionary per se, but if you create something else, you we need to see the definition somewhere ;-)
    Hope it's ok.
    Thanks for playing with us at the Craft Barn
