Recycling

Good morning everyone.
I have not got round to creating anything yet as I got distracted .....
I was sorting out and discarding some packaging this morning when I had a thought...... Tim's trinket pins come in a lovely little packet that I was sure that could be used for something useful.

I drew up a table of 30, one side for the insert tray and one side for the main packet and dripped 3 or 4 drops of alcohol ink into each tray with the name in the corrosponding space on the table. Once dry you have a palette of up to 30 colours that can be used with a blending fluid filled waterbrush to colour in your fragments, acetate etc and can be topped up easily and when not in use you can close it up for safe storage.
I was pretty pleased with it, what do you think?
(By the way, make sure it is totally dry before you close it!)
