Crazy quicky!

I needed a card in a hurry for a wacky friend so I got round to using one of the wacky UMs I bought, at the Stempelmekka in September, from Linda of www.lost-coast-designs.com/
It needed a crazy background to go with the image so I used a piece from the stash I made when I recently demoed alcohol inks blasted with an air duster. I must use some of them up and this was an ideal chance. I never get fed up playing with these backgrounds but must start to experiment a little with other techniques before I get completely boring.
I stamped an extra image on a scrap of white card, cut out the face and stuck it over the inky face to make it pop. Thanks to my dear friend Leo for this idea and I often use this technique on the faces of geishas... it is very effective.

Love this quirky stamp Jo, and as you say, the background goes perfectly with it.

It certainly is effective Jo. I used one of the alcohol backgrounds I made using the above technique to send a RAK this week. So easy yet looks so difficult, x
