TEACHING Tuesday - Week 5

Today's technique comes from our sister, Lisa. She writes:

"Inking is a favorite technique of mine. It is easy to use and once you start you'll never stop.I love using the smaller style such as cat's eyes in smaller areas and the larger pads for full stamped images. I love it and I ink everything! Not only can you stamp images, but it is good for inking edges of cardstock, photo mats, embellishments, and chipboard. Just about anything; I love using it on the tips of the flowers as well.

What some people don't know is that it can make your pictures "POP" just try inking around your actual photo. This will make the photo stand out with an added bit of 3-D layer effect.Try this out on your next layout and see the difference it can make."
Thanks, Lisa!

My favorite thing to do on layouts is also to ink. Love the look around the photos and the 3d it gives to the edges.
