ATC background techniques

These are some background techniques I've been playing around with since having Bernie Berlin and Traci Bautista's books . For all the samples I've used paper for watercolours and acrylics.
With the top 2 what I've basically done is transfered the excess alcohol ink colours on some metal foil tape by putting the paper on top of the tape and passing over with a brayer. Then on another piece of metal foil tape I've dabbed off the excess alcohol ink with baby wipes and the dabbed randomly over the paper .
On the bottom 2 I've just transferred excess alcohol ink onto a baby wipe and dabbed over paper randomly, the bottom right one I used a clear embossing ink pad and inked randomly over paper and then used gold embossing powder that I then heated with a heat gun.
I'ts like being back at school again...................the best background image is me !!!!!!!!!!!!!! ....what with all the excess colours and materials on my hands.
ciao ciao joan
