I did this for the documented life project and while it is a journal page I think it belongs here - Painted with coffee and outlined with india ink on watercolor paper

Its amazing how much shading you can achieve with coffee (and I bet it smells good too)!  Did you use regular strength coffee and layer and dry like watercolour?
