Playing around with Alcohol inks

Hey all! I was cleaning up the craft room and ended up playing around instead. Do you ever do that? This time with alcohol inks and clear embossing powder.

Blues, pinks and a bit of pearl make up the color base on this tag. First, I stamped my collage with TAC stamps and versamark. Embossed with clear and then made a mess with the alcohol inks on the tag. After it dried a bit, I ironed off the embossing powder.

If you look really close (or click on the picture) you can see where I added a bit of stickles onto certain parts of the stamped images.

The blue crinkled ribbon is seam binding that I colored with a Copic marker and then hand crinkled up - worked wonderfully.

This is a little bit edgy for me, but I like how it turned out. What do you think?
