it was an adventure indeed.

So that, my friends, is a close-up of a messy experiment. Inspired by my dear friend Rachel and her creations, I decided to try out a non-consistent color for the AIM business cards. (This basically involved slopping a very small amount of contrasting color on the ink disk repeatedly.)

Here you can see the mottled color on the roller, and the plate I used to make the cards. It was more fun than I can express, and the whole experience was exactly what the Adventures in Making blog is all about.

However, in typical Alison fashion, I bit off more than I could chew, and decided to duplex each card individually. (I will not be doing this again.)

But at last, ta da. A fun card for what I hope will be a fun (and useful) blog. (Each card is unique and backed with one of three bright colors. I hope to do the same in other color combos when I go back to the press.)

Oh, and while I have your attention- I'm giving free greeting cards to contributors over at AIM.
