Stampendous and Clearsnap Collaboration

Today we are having a wonderful time sharing our creations using some really cool inks from Clearsnap! Thanks for such a great time with your products.

Today I'm sharing a CAS that's a wee bit artsy. Freshly inked pads are primed for transferring color to other tools. You'll see it in some of my close-ups where I'll give you two of the tools I used.

My first tool is the trusty cotton swab. You can press into the saturated ink pads and get em loaded, then rub lightly or heavily to get different color saturation on your paper. Wisps of sky color around the tree and bird use the Ice Blue, French Blue, Azurite inks from the Ocean Breeze Paintbox pad.

The other tool unaware on my work table was a stylus. I pressed the ball tip into the ink and quickly tapped them over the berries using the Yellow Citrus ink from the Ocean Breeze Paintbox pad. Then I did the same tap with the Fireberry ink from the Classic Archival Dye ink in the Petal Point set. It's a really cool effect. :)

The design of the Paintbox pad is to be able to use them in the case as a ombre effect to and it was perfect for the awesome word collage in the Top Hat Snowman Cling Stamp Set. 

Thanks for staying with me for this long. I know you're excited to get going with more inspiration from Stampendous and Clearsnap, so here is the list and get hopping along. There are going to be PRIZES for those who hop along and leave a trail of comments. Details are on the Stampendous blog.
