Are your kids into sports?
Mine are. Gymnastics, specifically. In fact, the twins’ mom (me) really digs it, too. I fill the secretary position on the club board. It keeps us busy during the cold winter months!
I finally got around to making a page in honour of our favourite sport. I also implemented the inking technique (in a small way) on this layout, too. Let me show you:
The stamps I used are old. Ancient, even. One of them, I bought off a lady on Kijiji, and I’m honestly not sure where I bought the other one. They were both second hand and gently used. (If you ever need one to document your babies’ gymnastics careers, let me know. By then I may be ready to pass them on to you!)
See the small black heart 🖤 on the tag? It didn’t start out black! Nope, it began its life as a brown chipboard piece from the Documented complements pack. To make it black, I used my sponge dauber to apply black ink to it. Now, it just pops off that chipboard tag!
Inking isn’t just for paper. Using the right type of ink, you could apply ink to the edges of wood veneer, chipboard (like above), paper flowers (like you’d find at Michaels or your LSS), and even your photos! (I’d recommend using Staz-On ink for that option). To ink chipboard, veneer and paper flowers, dye- based or water- based inks work well.
Would you like to try inking on your photos? Let’s do that at our next virtual class- it’s on August 21! It’s at 11 am MST. You’ll need access to my exclusive fb group, though! If you’d like to join, comment on this post to let me know, then head over to Facebook and join my group! Follow this link!
You will need Staz-On ink for inking your pictures. Brown or black will be fine. You choose. Both inks are available on my website. Visit it here. And, of course, inking only happens with sponge daubers. Those are available on my website, too. (The three pack is about $8).
Any other questions? Just ask!
