Help for Faith (Markie'sMom)

My VSN friend Faith on SCS was having trouble posting a link for her tutorial so I figured I'd try to post it here and see if people could view it at all...who knows if it will work but we'l give it a try...
Here is her link with pictures

and directions but without pictures...

"I developed this technique about 10 years ago. I had wanted an NON-uniform look of mottled color and got this effect! Wow!This technique is very easy. You will need:5-10 sheets of Glossy Card StockSpray bottle of WATERReinkers (I used Tempting Turquoise and Close to Cocoa)Newspapers or covering for your work arearubber gloves (until you get the hang of this...!)First, SPRAY the "Base Sheet" with water.Next INK by dribbling reinkers onto the sheet..Next, SPRAY a "pressing sheet" with water.Then, SMASH the pressing sheet onto the base sheet.Use PRESSURE!Pull the sheets apart and start again with a NEW pressing sheet.SPRAY the new pressing sheet and Smash it onto the base sheet.You can do this up to 10 times and get variations on the colors. This makes AWESOME background paper!"
