I've been messing around
with the last napkin
from a pack I've used a great deal recently.
I bought them last Christmas & kept a few.
In fact I had to take this one from
my erosion bundle
( which I still have to turn into a piece of art )
***
I love how when you peel the napkin to a thin paper
then paste it over an image,
it makes a lovely transparent effect.

With this one,
the paper was rather special,
a thin sheet of tissue covering a botanic illustration in a book.
It's the last I have.
The colours of he illustration have stained the delicate tissue.
***
Trying out different ideas with these cards
to see the effects I get.
I could lightly stamp on white tissue paper.
