Q4 of 52

Well here is my fourth installment of 52 this took some time as it needed to dry. Inspired by Jackson Pollock, who's birthday was on the 28th. Although he died some years ago his art has led me to experiment with acrylic paints this week.

I used my ranger paint dabbers straight from the pot and used a stick to apply the paint direct to the tag, some of the paint I left thicker that others. I got into a yummy mess with this one. tee hee

The reverse of the card took some time too as the words where cut out of a magazine "ransom stylee" - this took some time as I found myself reading the magazine rather than finding the words. :)
