    Thanks so much!

    I took different approaches for each one, kinda? The first one, the blue/green one, I did watercolor first and then strictly did the acrylic ink over it.

    Second one, I did the big pink/purple circles wet-on-wet, then did the ink, then did the watercolor on the corners with the checkerboards and the shading with the red and purples to give the middle tangles some depth.

    Third one, I did some outlines for where the tangles would go, started tangling, then did watercolor, then more tangles and some white highlights where the paper white was getting a little over-drawn by the ink.

    Last one, I laid out the tangles from the bottom up, but the rainbow splotches/dots in the middle were just the spots, outlined, not completely covered in black around all of it. Then started watercolors from the top down. Then filled in the blank space around the colored portions in the middle with more ink to give it a solid dark background.

    So. Yeah. It was different for every card, and I loved trying out the different processes. I think the most successful thing was probably to do the third card's process--a little bit of tangling, followed by watercolor, then more tangling afterward.

    It is really interesting to hear all the different ways folks have combined tangles and watercolor!

    I finally have cards I'm happy with, so I'd like to sign up and I'll mail these Monday.

    They're watercolor washes, the tangling is in microns, and the crocus and tulip card have a little bit of posca paint pens.

    My cards: Tangle Sampler, Mooka, Paradox & Orbs, Flux in Pink with Orbs & Zen Flower, Orbs & Widgets, (not necessarily in that order but you'll figure it out. ) Looks like a couple of them need rotating. Just turn your head sideways.
