"Curiosities" Challenge 3: Alcohol Ink Monoprint

This is a favorite technique of mine, primarily because it involves alcohol inks.   Linda at Studio L3 is challenging her "Compendium of Curiosities Challenge"  followers to create a monoprint piece, and I liked Hels Sheridan's use of a tag.   This is the first time I've added a sentiment to a tag  by featuring it on another piece.

Evelyn, thanks for the info. I am terrible at putting collages together intelligently. I was awestruck by your image. The stamp I used was printed cirle w/face from Stamp in the Hand (1982-2001). Little quote make an impression 1997-2003. time Post Modern design (time fat slab) as you can see they may not be in production anymore (lol) Time fly's
