The Make it Monday Challenge at Papertrey Ink this week, is to make a layering card using white ink on kraft cardstock.
This challenge couldn’t come at a better time. My almost new Colorbox Frost White Ink pad had been turned a pretty, but not what I wanted, pink from using a stamp with residual red dye on it. What to do? I scraped off a top layer of ink, but it was still looking really quite pink. I decided to just go ahead and make the card, hoping that the pink would disappear on the kraft cardstock. It actually worked. More and more of the white ink buried in the pad came to the top and diluted the pink with each image I stamped. The card turned out well, and I think I salvaged the ink pad from going to the garbage.
Supplies: Papertrey Ink Friendly Flowers stamp set, Colorbox (slightly pink) Frost White pigment Ink, Simon Says Stamp and Hero Arts Dye Ink, Teresa Collins and Craft Medley sequins, Neenah Desert Storm cardstock and Scor tape
