    Thank you! [​IMG]
    I will probably eventually end up using all 51 (one of the Jacks was torn and taped up, so I think I'll just throw him away, haha). After all, they're already cut to size and durable. Otherwise I'll probably cut some cards out of Bristol and watercolor paper since I can't find all my cardstock (how someone loses a giant box of scrapbooking materials, I will never know [​IMG] ). I'm not the best at painting; I'm a lot better at drawing. But this is good practice [​IMG] It would probably also help if I had better brushes, but I make do with what I have.

    Those ideas sound very interesting! Can't wait to see the website for some pictures [​IMG]
