Christmas Tulip

5x7 alcohol inks on Yupo synthetic paper, an imaginary red variegated tulip.  I used lots of blending solution with this one to get the ink to flow and mix.  The red center was an afterthought when I turned it vertically and added a brighter red hue and let it run down. Initially I had a blue background that didn't work so removed that with 91% alcohol then added Sunbright Yellow.  The dark edges of the flower are that blue that I left on there.  (Yupo is sold by Tim Holtz products available thru www.scrapbook.com)
