Milagros


Something I had never heard of before but now I know

what it is thanks to Bigartadventure
I made mine with glue/watermixture, then some bits were added, a tissue molded over that and pressed down with more glue. Once it was dry I coloured it with alcohol inks and then metallic rub ,other bits were added for decoration.
There was a slight panic as I could not find my alcohol ink thingemyjig; it has disappeared somehow. See it's no good using one tool for 2 different things , before I always put it back in the container with alcohol inks but since I tried to use it for foam distress blending it's neither here nor there.
But.... I have an acrylic stampblock with some hooktape on it and that worked just as well.

Love the complex layers in this and the mossy look you've achieved. I'm glad our challenge prompted you to try something new and thanks for taking part.
Love
