Two for one or more

I found some doilies at the thrift store yesterday.  I decided to color one of them with my Dr. Martins watercolors that I bought a while back.  I don't think they are permanent but I don't plan to wash the doily so I won't worry about it.  I got the  doily nice and wet before I dropped the color onto it.  I wanted the colors to flow.  Since it was so wet I thought it would take forever to dry so I decided to blot it with some paper.  The light bulb went off, this makes a cool print!  Well, the first few didn't as the doily was so wet but the last five or six worked great.  I now have a stack of prints that I can use in a journal or whatever.  I might try over printing them with my gelli plate too.
