Glue resist Technique

I have a "thing" for alphabets. I collect stencils and rubber stamps, but this time I winged it and wrote the letters in my crummy handwriting. This is another challenge on Trish's yahoo group. I went to bed before the last batch of glue designs dried and wouldn't you know it, I have to leave in about an hour for an appointment. The next few are textured pieces that I hope to finish this afternoon.
The top one is turned out looking more like watercolor than pigment inks. I wonder if the baby wipes I used to remove color from the glue gave it that appearance. In the middle: Blues and greens, boysenberry and Prussian blue. I was going for a black and white one on the bottom, but the black wasn't rich enough, the pad is nearly dried up! The grayish color didn't work for me so I added some more pigments; perhaps some red and gold? It was late so who knows!

Thanks for your comments!
I'm quite pleased with these. I had hoped to finish the next batch this afternoon, but the day got away from me!
