Tip #8: Direct-to-Paper Technique


This is a basic technique using your ink pad directly on paper.
You can use this technique to ink the edges of your cardstock or to create backgrounds.
In this case, we're using the technique to lighten the bright pink cardstock...
the color was just not right for the card we were making...

What you'll need is a white ink pad of your choice, a stencil brush (optional) and a piece of cardstock.

1. Apply the ink directly on the paper.

2. If desired, blend the ink by using a brush.

3. Check out the top half of the cardstock. The pink doesn't look so bright anymore!
