    Default Box of old business cards? - Hey, watercolor practice

    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.
