It might be called a bright idea… Altering lamps with Alcohol Inks!

I started with an inexpensive lamp from IKEA (Lampan), worked with Alcohol Inks over it, and added some flair with pearls or jewels, Doodlebug Stick With It covered with foil and then some trimming. Finished, and a very inexpensive touch for my home! Of course they were made in colors matching my curtains…

The lovely netted lace in the background is created with the Gazelle, stamped and inked with Distress Inks.

These papers go well with military themes, too!
