Happy Friday, crafty friends! It’s been a fun week of reviews, and I more fun than I care to admit getting inky and stamping with the Kaleidacolor Raised Rainbow Dye Ink Pads I reviewed yesterday.
However, in my excitement, I totally forgot one of the MOST fun techniques with rainbow pads- brayering onto glossy cardstock. The result is SOOOOO much better than what you get on regular cardstock. That bit of glossy allows the colors to move and blend a bit before sinking in and becoming permanent.
I made you a quick video to demonstrate how you can get a striped effect or a more “ombre” effect. It’s under 3 minutes, so check it out:
Now, yesterday I promised to show you some of the cards I made. Here’s the first batch.
So now you’ve learned a technique and seen some samples. Got ideas? Want some Kaleidacolor Ink Pads of your own?
Well, you are in luck. I’m giving away a set of FOUR!
Now, I also want to say a special “thank you” to my Twitter followers- this week we tipped over 10,000 followers on @CraftTestDummy- no kidding! So there will be three entry options- leaving a comment, following on twitter, and tweeting about the giveaway (which you can do EVERY DAY). Notice that the Twitter entries are worth 3 and 10 entries respectively-just to say an extra “thanks” to my tweeps!
