Lids are palettes.

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended! Do you find yourself having to get up to get a plate or dish to watercolor? Well don’t any longer. Use the lid of your ink pad instead and drop ink from the re-inker. (Just remember to wipe it out when you are done with a paper towel or wipe.)

Happy Crafting!

Using blocks to color.

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended! With the new ink pads there are quite a few things you can’t do that you used to be able to. You can’t dip your blender pen in the ink directly. The lid doesn’t bend to get ink in it and watercolor. And you can’t run your card stock in it to ink the edges.

Instead you need to grab a sponge or dauber to get your edges. And in order to watercolor or use a blender pen you need a clear block. Yes, a clear block.

Grab a clear block and dip it in an ink pad. Then use the ink on the block with the blender pen or aqua painter. You have created a flat art palette of sorts.

Happy Crafting!
