4. Rip linen cover off the dye base ink pad of your choice, I use Ranger Distressing Pads all colors. Once you have ripped the cover off they are now no longer good for stamping only inking, but inking goes so much fast and I have mulitipuls of the colors I use for both.
5. Put the ink pad directly on the paper you want to ink with it lying on your desk top and rub away, start with the lighter color first, you can always add color but if you make it too dark you can not take the color away.
6. Just look at the wonderful marks left on the paper. For blogging purposes I'm showing the white paper under the printed, if you want more mark try leaving some string or tiny bits of paper under it, just play around until you get the effect you want.
7. Now look at the finished project, this is a card that will be in this months card class I think on the 18th. I will post the others later.
Now after seeing my desk, I had to laugh the other day when someone came into the store and asked how I organized my room????? I laughed and said my organizing skills consist of trying not to knock over a pile while stepping over it to get to the desk.
This concludes my first ever how to post, now you were warned so please do not hold it against me.
