Milestones Books with Rainbow Inks

Milestones Rainbow Inked Books

To create these papers, we're going to use Ranger's Posh Impressions Rainbow Sponge Inks, but ditch the sponges! Instead we'll be monoprinting with a combination of the Rainbow Inks and the Perfect Ink Refresher and then using a brayer with the Rainbow Inks and water from a Mini Mister, we'll imitate the technique from Tag 11 of Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas 2008 but use the Rainbow Inks instead of Distress Ink Pads!

All of the juicy details, plus some step-by-step photos, can be found as a tutorial in the Ranger Ink Link Yahoo Group's files as a Guest Inkling for today! If you haven't joined yet, it's a great little group with tons of great designers, store owners, and crafters of all levels... plus tons of Ranger "experts" (including their signature artists) to help inspire you and answer any questions! Each month, I host a new challenge, sponsored by Ranger, with three random winners who get sent some awesome loot direct from Ranger! Every group member is welcome to play along and the challenges vary from product or technique to theme based challenges! And, every week, there is a new Inkling chock full of directions to create a new project or technique!
