StampinMama1 demonstrates how to add ink texture effects to your scrapbook projects. When creating backgrounds for your scrapbook pages, you can use ink to both create texture and create interesting effects on the layout. Press the ink on the paper to use a direct to paper ink application technique. You can create cool effects like waves using this technique. Don't swipe the pad around or smudge it onto the paper. Instead, drag the ink pad in a motion of waves across the page. Start at one edge and end at the other edge, dragging the ink pad in one fluid motion. You may need to press down hard on the ink pad. Ink pads are great ways to add effects to your scrapbook projects.
