I started with glossy photo paper and Adirondack alcohol inks (butterscotch-gold and watermelon) plus the blending solution. There are many u tube videos demonstrating how to do this so I won't go into details. It is really fun though to see the colors puddle and blend.
I stamped over the paper with a flourish, the meditating yogi and the feeling groovy stamp. I punched 2 black flowers and added tiny little gold beads on the one, glued them together and added the black rhinestone to the center of the die cut. The die cut is from Sizzix "Elegant Enhancement #2". I used an embossed black paper to make the cut, then rubbed antique gold "rub and buff" over it and laced black paper strips through it. I like it slightly off center and set at an angle. The guitar and star and key where added to enhance the theme. This is a fun challenge working with different elements instead of a card pattern or sketch. I will use it to cover a journal and fill it with groovy ideas and inspiration.
