Thirty Days of Biblical Lettering

The last day of the #30daysofbiblicallettering project deserved something strong and courageous.
I broke away from the journal, and made a few backgrounds using a very simple technique that I recently discovered again, originally blogged about here.
The only supplies you need are card stock, plastic wrap (Saran or other) and water soluble markers.  I tried a few different kinds of markers; one isn't better than another, but if they are juicy and have a fat tip it helps.  Here are the steps:
  1. Cut a piece of plastic wrap a little larger than your card stock.
  2. Crumple the plastic wrap into a ball.  Uncrumple it and smooth it flat on your table.
  3. Scribble on the wrap with 3-4 colors of markers.  You don't need a lot of coverage.
  4. Fold the wrap in half to mix the colors.  Unfold.
  5. Spray the wrap lightly with water.
  6. Gently place your card stock on top of the wrap and press it flat to allow the color mixture to transfer to the paper.
  7. Peel the card stock off.
  8. Repeat with more color if needed and let dry.
