Drunken Scotch Technique

I found a new technique at: Kattoys I also saw this technique on another blog, too, which I can't find now, of course... I played with 5 liquid glues and Ranger's alcohol inks. What fun - smelly, but fun!

My fave was the sample using Aleene's Tacky Glue.

For these sample tests:
1. I punched scalloped circles from cardboard.
2. Painted circles with Ranger's Dabber in Gold and a few other colors. Let dry. 3. Applied glue all over with paint brush.
4. Applied 2-3 drops of 5 different Ranger Adirondack alcohol ink colors (not metallic). 5. Dried each sample with heat gun, encouraging bubbles.

Notes: I let finished samples dry overnight. The sample with Aleene's Tacky Glue is my fave, seems to have a lot of thick texture. Least fave was the sample with Modge Podge Gloss. I also like the crackling with the Craft Smart All Purpose sample. I plan to do a few more tests - at least one test with Elmer's White Glue and another test mixing a couple glues together.

What do you think of these textures? Have you ever tried this technique?

This is Altered Celtic Gypsy. Thanks for the comment. About the cards to the troops I made 50. I gave them to a woman at work that her son just re-inlisted for time over there. I asked her if she would send them to her son so he could pass out in his troops. She was more then happy to do that.

This looks like a fun thing to play with.

Howdy Kimberly,
Thanks for stopping by - and for your comment. Glad you like it!

The PDF file of the test images took f-o-r-e-v-e-r to create, but it DOES look good, if I must say so myself.
