It is still raining at my house today, just like it has been the past couple of days. I decided to look on the sunny side of things though and created a beach scene using my new favorite tools, the ink spots. These little cuties are sold as sets. Each Stampin’ Up! color family has a set. Of course, I had to have them all. The little ink spot pads are a mere 1 inch and the pads are raised from the base of the ink pad holder so you can easily use them to apply ink directly to the paper. They are much easier to control then the larger pads when doing Direct to Paper Techniques.
Today’s project was also made for my Stampin’ Up! Down Line, Ink To Art Team’s Technique Swap. This month’s technique is, you guest it, Direct to Paper.
Let’s get started. . . . . . . . .
