Alcohol Ink & Citra-Solv Backgrounds

I am finally conquering my fear of alcohol ink and used it recently to make some backgrounds for my ATCs.  I have both Adirondack and Jacquarad Pinata Color inks and added them to my Mini Misters to "spray" on glossy cardstock.

I then took my white gel pen and doodled on some black card stock that I tore into pieces.  Next, tore the Citra-Solve paper into strips, glued it to the alcohol ink background and then placed the torn black cardstock onto the card.

Finally I cut out some images, went over the images with a black .01 Prism ink pen and glued them onto the cards.  They turned out rather well and I like the effect the different techniques have as a background.

These cards were posted for 2011 Project 365 for the following days:
