I've been having fun reading Tim Holtz's 12 tags of Christmas posts on his blog, and I made the plaid background after his 2nd or 3rd day. His technique is basically the same thing as the alcohol technique, except you put the color down in stripes rather than dabbing it down.
I don't have too many alcohol inks, and I hadn't found a use for the background since the colors came out rather odd for a christmas card (or so I thought anyways!).
But SCS came to the rescue (you guys are great!) with all the fun color combo's this season. Today's ways to use it was to be inspired by Christmas carols, so I used the same one Julia did - O Christmas Tree - but went with the funky color combo. What do you think?? TFL!
Thanks for taking a look!
