What is so intriguing about this old post is that I have absolutely no idea where these altered cards ended up. I'm not sure if I still have them, if I used them on a project, if they were given away, if they were trashed...
The odd thing about selecting this post is that I was just playing with alcohol inks yesterday. I had bought a few of the new colors from Ranger and decided to swatch out my collection. I tried them out using a straw, canned air, and two kinds of Yupo paper. I made...nothing. I was just playing around with them. I finally just tried some techniques I have seen to see what results I can get. Some were good, some were ugly. But the point is that I played. This playing has sparked a new interest and perhaps enough motivation to use up the inks I have. (or at least use enough that I don't feel like I've wasted money on supplies I'll never use) I'm fairly certain that I won't be investing in alcohol inks any more.
So this Throwback Thursday has reminded me to get back to making altered playing cards and to use up my alcohol ink stash. Not bad for a play date.
