I actually got this technique from some day care art projects that I use to do when I was little. I just took a piece of glossy white cardstock, put a few drops of ink from the refills on the paper, then got a straw and blew the ink around the paper. Looks really cool, but I did this for a swap so I made 20 of them, so I could only do a few at a time before I got too dizzy. I loved that each spot was so different and gave each card its own personality. :o) The only downfall to this technique is that it take a long time for it to dry. I did all 20 on Saturday afternoon and let them dry overnight.

Thank you for your idea. I have been trying to locate the 'ink spot' idea since I saw another card on the gallery. What a simple and clever idea. I wonder if the ink would move on plain card stock??? I will have to try.
