Tulips In A Row Stamp

Ok, I am just loving this stamp... such a great card base... So today I'll be adding more and more cards made with it but using alternate color schemes.

Rusted Tulips

A very good way to use a stamp like this is to stamp it with Ranger's Archival Ink Pads in your choice of colors... I like to use a brown because it doesn't interfere with the colors of the leaves or petals and isn't as glaring as black... but sometimes black is good ;)



Then take your Niji Waterbrush and use an Adirondack Ink Pad (also the older Ranger Sea Shells and Sea Brights which are being re-released as Adirondack pastels and brights with a few new colors) to color the images. These pads feature a hinged lid which easily burps color off of the pad into the top of the lid by pressing down on the center... then you can pick up that color with a waterbrush. Alternately, you may press any water-based ink pad against the Ranger Non Stick Craft Mat to pool some ink. The Distress Inks are great for this... but if you move into other brands or work with a non-distress black then your colors may separate into their composite colors.
