Testing out ideas and re-purposing a box of business cards that I don't need. LOL

Eventually all this "goofing around" will be used on an actual map. :)

Huh, that might work better than my sketch book paper.

Yeah, it held up pretty nicely. I dropped the card in the sink full of water and let it soak a couple minutes and then it stuck down on the board I use without any taping whatsoever.

I started this with a wash and then used a ball point pen to lightly draw in some hills and stuff which I then painted over with darker colors. All in all, it worked surprisingly well.

Nice idea to re-purpose the cards.

Too bad you could not re-purpose something larger!

Its a beautiful little piece of art.
