I recently got a Red Ink bottle, and as a result of not cleaning my nib well enough, there was just enough black leftover to add great texture to the Red Ink. I also added a thick medium to gold paint to see what would happen.
The result were these two cards, which followed my recent phase of Ink with Acrylics. One, I specifically made with Diwali in mind, and the other has a simple mango border that would work for any Indian Function. It’s hard to tell in this grainy dark picture, but the gold is really shiny and the literal ‘pop’ worked out really well with the red ink. The paper is quality water-colour card paper.
