For a fun experiment, I decided to take one of my eight printed barn owl cards and ink it by hand to resemble an evenly inked print. This technique is similar to making a monoprint or monotype.

I chose this card to experiment on because the
Arches watermark is plainly seen.

Here, I am using a #4 Rapidograph technical pen.
|Angled photo to show where I've stippled ink by hand:|
it has a slight sheen.
Here is my first post to welcome the new year - on my birthday, no less!
