Affirmation Cards

Tested supplies for Saturday's class on Suminigashi . Suminigashi is a paper marbling technique. Drop sumi ink onto water. Like an oil slick on water. Gently drag a toothpick or plastic comb through the water to make a pattern. Place watercolor paper on the water, gently tap the back a time or two and carefully remove the paper. Ta-da!

I decided the marlbed side would make an interesting look for a deck of affirmation cards. Paper cut to 2.5 inches by 3.5 (same size as an ATC) No ego problem, here. "I'm wicked smaht" as only a Bostonian can pronounce "smart."

Sumi ink on Canson 140 lb. watercolor paper, Pigma pen, Derwent Watercolor pencils, Ziller Glossy Black ink, Gillotte 303
