Today we're featuring a product review on Splitcoaststampers centering on this new "Cute Colorful and Compact" ink line from Clearsnap! The inkpads house 4 mini pads in seasonal collections, with the idea of using them in planners. The inks are fast-drying and permanent when dry - they're ColorBox Premium Dye Inks, which are foam pads, and super vibrant.
I decided to focus on this Fall collection, and think a little outside the box. To start, I lined up 4 mini banner stamps in my MISTI and was able to ink and stamp them all at once for a color swatch... I used the banners for some ATCs I'll share tomorrow!
Dye inks are great for watercoloring since they're water soluble, and with the 4 mini pads, it was easy to make a quick palette. This is a cheap tile I got at Home Depot. (You can see the brown ink reacted a little differently there - I'm not sure why that was, but I was still able to use it for watercoloring.)
I stamped my Lenten Rose image several times around the edge of a 4" Art Square from Inchie Arts, then watercolored using the inks and building up layers
I swiped the blue inkpad across a piece of smooth cardstock for the die cut bird and banner.
