Before taking a trip recently, Lis answered a question for me about alcohol inks. The answer included some time together at her house and she showed me, rather than told me, different applications. One of the papers we created were simply drops of the inks on a piece of Saran type wrap and a sponge dipped in them and streaked on the page. We made several different variations of the colors and inks mostly with photo paper. The card that is attached uses a striped piece using this method. The flower in the upper right corner is made from taking apart a small pine cone and the little flowers are dried from the sun and ripe for spreading their seeds. They are both part of the local Montana landscape. Ernie is a friend of a friend that received this card.
