Spooky Alcohol Resist

Hi everyone,

Linda has treated us again to a new Compendium of Curiosities challenge and it is a though one! But very fun to do/try. It is the Alcohol Resist technique which can be found on page 59. I didn't do much Halloween ​​projects for a little while, so it was about time for one.

I've used Pitch Black and Purple Twilight alchohol inks as base. I continued a little too long application of the alcohol inks, and now it is become a bit dark purple, but actually I think it's pretty cool. This technique I used for the whole background. I am so in love with the wiggly eyes that I have applied them to Mr. Owl and in the o's of wooden spooky letters.

Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!



  1. Haven't got Tim's second book but this is really tempting me. Fantastic tag!
