This is a card for my friend Marilyn. If she reads this I guess she won't be surprised next week LOL
I have been playing with 4 x 4 cardboard squares. In both of these projects I used a text page torn out of a book I am altering. I sanded it heavily in several areas then I wet it with water and then sprayed it with walnut ink and let it dry. Later I dry brushed off-white acrylic paint over it. The inks are all "Memories" permanent ink. I used this because I wasn't sure when I started if I would want to tint the images with chalks, water colors, markers...or nothing at all.
