     This week's Mixed Media Challenge was to use a water technique to drip or blow ink around on our pieces.  I made three cards.
     The first card started with a piece of paper I'd prepared using the CitraSolv Magic Technique that Lydia/understandblue shared a long time ago. It begins with a page from a National Geographic magazine and  uses a solvent to dissolve the ink and smear it around and then a plastic bag or towel to remove some of the ink. I rolled some white ink onto this paper and stamped the diamond pattern on the right. I then loaded up a brush with water and Island Indigo ink and spatter it around. I used some more watery ink to add to the larger drips then used gravity to drip the spatters down.
