Three Muses - Hats

This week's theme at The Three Muses is hats. For this challenge I wanted to use alcohol inks again. I do not often use alcohol inks, somehow I cannot produce those nice results other guys always show us... And yes, my first attempt with red and purple colors became too dark. I tried again with green and blue inks, and after some attempts I was happy with the result. Luckily, I had not yet thrown away anything. The first attempt proved to be very nice for the hat! The stamp is from Stampington. Thanks for looking!

Deze tag heb ik gemaakt voor het thema hats van The Three Muses. Ik wilde weer eens iets doen met alcohol inkten. Ik gebruik alcohol inkten niet zo vaak. Op een of andere manier lukt het mij niet om die mooie resultaten te krijgen die anderen ons op hun blogs tonen... En jawel, de eerste poging met rood en paars vond ik te donker. Opnieuw proberen met andere kleuren, dit keer groen en blauw. Na een paar pogingen was ik wel tevreden met het resultaat. Gelukkig had ik nog niets weggegooid, want de eerste poging kon ik prachtig gebruiken voor de hoed! De stempel is van Stampington. Bedankt voor het kijken!

I think you did a great job with the alcohol inks, Mark! I have problems, too, so I could relate to your post. However, your end result is perfect!

Just look at those fellows 'eyeing' up that wonderful pink stripey hat. Bet they all wish they had one! Great job Mark.

Mark, I bought myself a set of alcohol inks but have yet to achieve the effects I am looking for when I try to blend them. I see such lovely tinting in stampers' artwork and I would love to be able to do it myself.
Your tag is fantastic. I love the image you have used and the whole effect is great.

You may be interested in a new challenge which opens on Monday. It is a simple one. Each week a one word theme will be posted. The first one is TIME.

I would love to see you and your artwork there when you have the TIME!
