12 Tags of September...with a twist

Hey y'all! We have a tropical storm in our midst today so I have hunkered down in the studio and got an early start on my September 12 Tags!  

I started by created a bunch of  Paint Patina backgrounds on manila tags.

Then for the second background I used Black and Mushroom Alcohol inks on Yupo and then stamped in various colors of Archival Inks to create the "negative" technique (as seen in Creative Chemistry 103). 

For the TWIST I sprayed a couple of the backgrounds with Isopropyl Alcohol- creating a droplet effect that when dried turned into a cool blue splotchy background.

 I added a bit of hand "stitching" to two of the three tags and will be entering these in the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge:  It's a Stitch Up

I love how the twist on this technique provide the perfect halo for my umbrella man! 
Thanks so much for joining me today! Hope everyone who was/is in the path of the storm stays safe and sound! 
Embrace Imperfection!
