I used a sheet of A3 watercolour paper and splashed some acrylic inks all over it, diluting them with water. I don't know whether it's because of the kind of inks I used, but my page didn't look anything like it was supposed to. However, once I cut it into pieces, I quite liked the effect. I've got 8 cards out of the A3 sheet. They are about 6" X 4" in size. These were the colours I used on both sides of the sheet:
As a by-product, I ended up with these inked kitchen towels, which I actually rescued from the bin after absentmindedly chucking them away. When will I learn? I'm not sure what I will use them for just yet, but it would have been a shame to throw them away.
This deck of cards will fit nicely in a pocket inside my LifeBook. It can also be expanded with cards of the same size, but with a different colour scheme. I felt very inspired by this lesson and would create more cards right now if I didn't have another great bonus lesson to work on this week. I'll be back with Part 2 shortly!
