Mastering the swipe.

It’s Tutorial Thursday!  The swipe is not a hard technique but it does take some practice.  If you push too hard you get too much ink or you could damage your pad.  If you push too lightly then you don’t have enough background and have to start over.  There is definitely a sweet spot.

So the first few that you do I would encourage you to do on a scrap piece of card stock.  It needs to be similar to your final product otherwise it will soak up the ink differently and your practice will be for nothing.  Here’s a photo of some finished cards.
