Today I am going to show you how I made my own Fall ink pad so that leaves on my tree look natural, when I am done you’ll be able to also!! Of course, I made a video you can go here if you would like to SEE how I made it! Naturally, I tend to look at pictures and if I have questions a video helps me out a lot. As an example, here is a picture of my card:
So, how did I make my fall ink pad? To begin with I had a dirty, yucky Versamark pad that I never used and thought of chucking it in the trash……but no, I could make my own Fall ink pad so my tree will look gorgeous AND match the colors I was using for this card!
Since I wanted the colors to match my card I used Bumble Bee, Cherry Cobbler and for the green I went with Just Jade. Already I knew that I wanted to use the Holiday Rhinestones and those used Cherry Cobbler for the red, and a yellow that looked a lot like Bumble Bee but the green was Shaded Spruce so I went with a lighter shade of color and used Just Jade instead. It’s funny how I go about figuring out which colors I use in my crafting, this time it was all about the Rhinestones……gotta have that BLING!
For a different fall project that I made a few years ago, click here!
