Bird in Cage

I created this background using alcohol inks on kromekote (gloss) card. I first made concertina folds along just the edges of the card. You could carefully measure and score lines with a ruler for a neater look, but I was after a more relaxed, almost grungy look, so just folded roughly, making folds different lengths. I rubbed Blending Solution over with a sponge, then a light orange. Working quickly, I dribbled various colours of alcohol ink (Sunset Orange, Eggplant & Meadow) along folds, tilting the card to make them run along ridges created by folds. They dry very quickly.
