3 postcards

These 3 were made on top of some craft paper that I was just playing around with, experimenting with pulling the paper thru puddles of various colors of inks and alcohol inks. The brown one was passed thru so many, many colors in an attempt to save all the efforts into it. The alcohol inks don't flow as nice as the distress inks. I like the way it worked with the blue inks and the metallic silver  alcohol inks, but the brown argggg! But in the end, after using them anyways, they didn't turn out half bad. The photos of them tho....another argggg. Capturing the true colors is a challenge. The metallic gold running thru the brown one really isn't so predominant in person. Maybe it's because it's metallic, the camera highlights it somewhat and drowns out the other techniques.

Anyways, here they are.
