Two for one!

Martians (stamp)
Little Strips (stencil)

I love a bit of alcohol, don't you? I'm talking INK of course ;-) 

Alcohol ink on the PVC American Tags by Carabelle is a dream combo. I used my *new* Little Strips stencil:

Along with my favourite go-to pink/orange combo, and then added the tag to a card.

But of course, when you are left with alcohol ink on your stencil it would be a BIG SHAME to waste it, so I added a contrast layer of Cloudy Blue alcohol ink on my Gel Press, placed the stencil face down to transfer the ink, and then did a pick up print with acrylic paint. Two for one! I like the more grungy look you get when you do this:

A Woolly Jumper and a few added threads later .... ta-da!

(Also, notice how the jumper stripes make a good little journaling space!)

And here they are side by side - two for one!
