Bad things that happen in our lives can leave an ugly stain on our hearts. If we let it that stain can negatively affect our lives. On the other hand if we let God fix it he will make that ugly stain into something good.
And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.Romans 8:28
People like to used coffee or tea to stain papers, but I wonder about the long term effect of those substances on the paper. I use either ink or acrylic paint.
First apply a little ink or paint to the bottom of a cookie sheet, then add just enough water to wet your paper. Then lay the paper down into that mixture. It is up to you to decide how thoroughly you want to stain the paper. You can add more color if you need to. Then lay it aside to dry.
Here I used “rice” paper that needed toned down. I used colored ink on these.
