oooo mxer145 these are so lovely... I'm confused by step 5- do you put the image under water and then brush off excess ink?

thanks for sharing!

I'm assuming that you got this off of atcsforall, yes? I tried it and it didn't work - what kind of ink do you use? I was using india ink and it just took over the whole thing.
Anyways, your cards look fantastic! I don't know whether the birds or the poppies are my favourite. Good use of the technique!

Thank you! Yes I did, sabrinalouisemiller, I actually used watered down acrylic paint, black.
teachart - I thought that too, but I just used a wet paper towel and blotted it off.

I will have to give a go at this again when I have some time - thanks for the info!

That is amazing, I think I might have to try it out in the future when I'm going back to painting Cheesy

I love how these images are there, but not perfect.  Makes for a wonderful technique.  Nice job!
