Color Throwdown 465

I love the color purple...and red, and turquoise, and blue...but purple has been my "favorite" color for decades.  I couldn't pass up this Color Throwdown of purple, black, and white.  From the beginning, I planned to use alcohol inks, which required some experimentation on my part--some which didn't work at all.  The feathers were die cut from a piece of Yupo inked with Amethyst (which is the blue purple I like the best) and Soot Black alcohol inks and then swirled with a paintbrush full of rubbing alcohol.  (The technique was one I watched recently on Jennifer McGuire's blog.)  The feather die is from Little B's "Autumn" set; "awesome" is from Verve.

The alcohol inks on Yupo look beautiful! I still haven't tried that, but I need to! Thanks for joining us at the Color Throwdown!

Love this! The blending (or lack thereof) is "awesome" on the feathers. Thanks for sharing!

WOW! The look you achieved with your alcohol inks and paint brush is unusual and completely amazing! This stuns me, Evelyn. Beautiful card!
