Many of you may have seen June Pfaff Daley's art on the cover of the latest CPS magazine: CPS Jan/Feb 2012 I have used piñata inks a little, and have been using Pearl Ex for many years I didn't have any scissors that I wanted to paint, so used a paint can opener. I have many, as the hardware store always includes one with each can of paint.

Piñata Alcohol Ink
I used the ink mixed with extender so I could paint it on with a small brush. Then I mixed Pearl Ex with the extender and painted it on. I plan to add more color soon!
I worked in the garage and next time I need to add a better light source and remember to wear disposable gloves. It takes a long time to get alcohol ink out from under your finger nails! When I get tired of paint can openers, I know I have other metal items that I can use to learn the technique before I move on to old keys and other things that are laying around in the garage.
Karen's challenge helped me find my muse (missing for a year) and now my muse won't stop tossing creative things at me! (That is a good thing.)
