Tutorial Tuesday 2/9

Welcome to my first official Tutorial Tuesday! I'm very excited to have TWO tutorials for you today, since I was a bit remiss in posting the tutorial for coloring with Classic Ink Spots, pictured below. We will also have another Tutorial about some neat stamp customization. Here we go!
For this tutorial, we will be using the Very Thankful set from the Idea Book & Catalog, which is also available FREE during Sale-a-bration with a $50 purchase!

First, stamp your image with StazOn Ink. StazOn is great because it dries super fast and is waterproof, which makes it the best for coloring with markers, blender pens or water coloring.

Next, take your Classic Ink Spot and tap it onto your acrylic block. (This gives the same effect as "squishing" the lids of the full size stamp pads.)

Depending on the size of your block, you can stamp many colors, giving you an artist's pallet to work with!

Next, take your blender pen, and swirl it in the ink you choose. Once you're finished with a color, color off onto your grid paper or a scrap until the marker runs clear again. Note: you can see that my blender pen is stained in the photo; this may happen to you, but it is perfectly okay. As long as you color off on a scrap until the blender pen "ink" is clear, you won't have any color transfer.

And voila! Your image is colored beautifully, and you don't have to have the storage space for all those full size stamp pads!

Supplies Used:
Very Thankful Stamp Set

Whisper White Cardstock Scrap

Soft Subtles Classic Ink Spots Set

Bender Pen

Grid Paper

Happy Crafting!!!
