Those fabulous...but unpredictable...alcohol inks

Basic Tim Holtz this week for Linda's Grungy Monday:   alcohol inks.  Before he developed the Distress Inks, Tim created a lot of things with his line of alcohol inks.  (Video is HERE.)

My tag is of heavy glossy cardstock, inked with my favorite "primary" trio:  Wild Plum, Butterscotch, and Stream.  I inked a domino with the same felt and edged both the tag and the domino with gold Krylon.  Image is from Stampington and the definition ribbon is from Graphic 45.

OMG Evelyn you have created a wonderful 3D effect on this Tag, and I love that you added a bit of spotlighting too. This must be one of the best I have seen from you,(in my opinion of course).
I love everything about this tag.
