Alcohol Inks on Transparency

I´ve tried different techniques using alcohol inks on transparency here for this week´s TMTA challenge:
In the Asian ATC I´ve used just a strip of an Asian newspaper as a background.
The pink and orange ATC is based on an old book page that I´ve coloured with crayons first so that the letters are hidden and the colours of the inks are supported.
And the fish piece shows the complete book text so that it needed more white gel pen accents to brighten it a bit.
My favourite is the middle one.

I love the pink and orange one. Thanks for the tip about coloring the page to tone down the text.

I really like this technique; I've tried it myself and enjoy. You really created beautiful pieces with the alcohol inks and transparencies. I love them all and think the fish piece is my favorite. Wonderful Marion! You are so creative!

All are beautiful but I like the fish one too because of all the white pen work.
