The World of Coloured inks

Feeling I needed a change today, I've been having fun with acrylic inks.
They dry really quickly which is great if you're using a dip pen but not so much if you want to do a wash.
The painting below was going to be my submission for Illustration Friday but I ended up hating the overworkedness (is that a word?) of it, so I decided it would be better off cut up......ending up with something entirely unexpected.Can you tell what I did?


We went to a really good concert last night. It was the band Elbow. Click HERE if you'd like a quick listen to them.

They remind me of those paper dolls that you could dress in different outfits. I really liked them. I used to make my own a zillion years ago.
