Spectrum Rainbow Pad Direct to Paper Background

 

I have been enjoying using my custom Spectrum pad, that I inked with Stampin' Up! ink refills (see this post).  Today I am sharing a different way to use your rainbow pad... I used "direct to paper" technique with my watercolor paper, spritzed it, added more ink with my refills and blended with the Aqua Painter!  I stamped images from the Sheltering Tree stamp set on top and I love it!

Ink your own Spectrum rainbow pad with Stampin' UP! ink refills.  Use the Direct to Paper technique and water to create a beautiful sunset background for the Sheltering Tree card.  Created by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

See step by step "Direct to Paper" photos below...

  1. drag the rainbow pad across your paper, pressing as you go
  2. spritz with water
  3. add more ink or more water if desired

Note.. you will get different results with different paper. I used Stampin' UP! watercolor paper on my card today.

After the background dried thoroughly, I stamped the tree trunk from the Sheltering Tree set in Early Espresso ink, then stamped the leaf image in several shades of green.  I used Call me Clover, Lemon Lime Twist, and Shaded Spruce.

I matted the watercolor paper with Gorgeous Grape cardstock, then added it to a folded Mango Melody card base.
