Inspriation Avenue Art Challenge: Sacred/Ancient/Symbolic art.

I did this set of Art Trading Cards for a ATC exchange and when I ran regular photos of waterlilies through my printer I found out that the Cyan (blue-green) was not working at all and that the images came out this amazing color.  I have never been able to duplicate this exact effect in photoshop.  I used metallic gel pens to highlight them and add the OHM symbol

They are symbolic of Buddhism to me…
