III ante meridiem - ink spatter cut-and-paste

A bit of Homestuck fanart, where I used a fun trick. For the dress, I wanted to spatter ink with reckless abandon. But then it would be hard to keep the clean white I wanted on her skin and the clock. (Look, I included a clock! ^u^) So, I drew the outlines on half a sheet of bristol. Then I traced the outline of the dress, flipped it, and traced the traced image onto the back of the other half of the sheet. Then, on the front of that half, I did this:

Then I cut along the outline on the back. Because I had flipped it, the shape was facing the right way on the front side. After inking the drawing, I stuck on the dress. Like a paper doll!
