Happy Thursday!!! Today, I’ve got another one of Laura’s Quick Tips. I’m going to show you how to ink a Spectrum Pad. I have been playing with these a lot lately and LOVING IT!!! You can check out those projects here and here!
It is really simple to do and all you need are 5 of your favorite colors of Ink Refills! I used Pineapple Punch, Mango Melody, Pumpkin Pie, Poppy Parade, and Real Red in this sample. I have also done Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather, Pool Party, Coastal Cabana, and Bermuda Bay. Another one I created in a rainbow color scheme. I have 2 more to ink up and I can’t decide. Let me know your suggestions of colors in the comments below – 5 total colors!
Be sure that the ink pad is opened up; each color pad is separated from the one next to it. This is also how you will want to store the pad so that the colors don’t bleed together. Take the ink refill and just squirt on ink until it looks saturated. Just a light coating is not enough because you need to fill the little sponge and soak it. Also, don’t go overboard or it will start to run down in the tray. Remember it is easier to add more but not so easy to remove ink.
For the little label on the front, I took a file folder label and pressed it into the ink pad to pick up each color. Then I just wrote the name of the color below it and stuck it on the front of the ink pad. Now it is time to stamp and have fun!!!
