Playing with Yupo

Good morning friends.
I trust that you are all well. A little while ago before going on holiday I wandered down to The Artistic Stamper for a catch up with Jennie and a mooch around the shop. One of the things I picked up was a sheet of Yupo paper. What I liked was the fact that Jennie sells it by the sheet which is perfect if you just want to try it without having to purchase a whole pack.
 It is an unusual surface, not really paper, more like a plastic sheet, similar to Tyvek. I started off using a selection of Alcohol ink colours and blending solution to create the background.
 Then, I laid one of my masks over it, I loaded a piece of felt with blending solution and used it to take away some of the colour.
 When it was dry I stamped one of my birds onto it using black StazOn ink. I coloured with a copper and silver Sharpie marker to give the bird a solid body so you couldn't see the background through.
To finish I stamped some flourishes, edged the piece with copper marker and matted it onto black card. It made the perfect front piece for this 8 x 8 album I had done ages ago.
