Invisible Ink Insects

Hello all!  I'm delighted to be over at the PaperArtsy blog this evening with some experimenting for this fortnight's Torn, Ripped, Burnt challenge theme.  Like some seventeenth century conspirator, I've been playing with invisible ink!


I hope you'll have time to hop over to PaperArtsy to find out how my invisible insects came to life.  And then I'll be back with some more Funkie Junkie tags very soon, all being well!

Thanks for stopping by, and I'll see you soon.

The paper burns, but the words fly free.

Absolutely stunning !

These mini ATCs are so cool! You are so creative Alison! I've been loving your encore posts with a touch of sadness, tho. (From wanting to try same but knowing I'm unable to do so. Damn hands!) You still inspire to try new things and I am with painting. Hope your home for the holidays. Warm hugs, Nan

This project reminds me of happy times, playing detectives and solving clues. After writing with invisible ink, we would iron the paper to reveal whodunnit. Great project! Xx

I've just read your full post Alison, very interesting experiment and technique, with a wonderful result!!!
Sorry as I did not left you any comment there. It's a bit late, and I miss time now to read and comment all my friends' posts on PA's blog (there are so many!!).
Back to this, I will certainly have a try with lemon juice and fire to reveal!!! Thank you.
