ColourQ #192

Tuesday, June 4, 2013

 
Good Morning.
Time for another ColourQ!!
I absolutely love these colors and thought they'd be perfect for my dad.
 
 
I applied ink directly onto white cardstock from the pad itself before die cutting.
It saturated the cardstock with color and also changed the texture of the paper.  It made it much softer and more pliable.  I dabbed at the ink covered cardstock with a wrinkled up baby wipe.  This added a subtle texture to it...almost like suede.
 
 
 
Thanks so much for coming by today.
 
 
 
 
I hope you'll join us this week at the ColourQ!!
