So I directly put those strips onto each ink pad so they would be colored just like regular cardstocks. With Hero Arts Shadow Inks, it may look uneven at first but as they try it evens out and becomes really smooth. As you can see above the picture, you can hardly tell they were made by using ink pads.
I really love the Blackboard ink pad – I just call this my new fav. black dye ink, in truth it is more like a really dark charcoal color. And it is oh, so juicy! I used Blackboard for the sentment rather than using it as one of the strips since it might bring the whole color tone down by a lot. Make sure to watch the video tutorial to see how I made this fun card. Hope you enjoyed! Thanks for stopping by!
