Today we are sharing a few projects all using the same technique we hope you enjoy them.

Direct to paper technique 

The direct to paper technique can be used in a number or ways.  It is using your normal ink pad without a stamp and, as the name suggests, applying it direct to the paper. 

Sheila

Sheila used Broken China, Bundled Sage and Worn Lipstick Distress ink directly on 12x12 White Textured card stock to make a beautiful background for this layout. The background was 'water splattered' before stamping round the edges. The hearts have been stamped onto textured paper and coloured with Worn Lipstick too. The Tag has been inked the same way ready to Journal on.
Stamps used are Donna Downey and Unity.

 Jenny



Jenny swiped a Stampin Up Garden Green ink pad in a circular motion to create a landscape for 

her Paper Smooches sheep to gamble on :0)

The sky has been inked using a sponge over a scalloped border to create clouds.

Stamps used are Paper smooches "party possee"


Kate


 
Once the card stock was cut to the shape of a pocket Kate rubbed a night of navy ink pad directly onto the card. It took a few goes to achieve the " Denim" look.
All stamps used are from Lawn Fawn
 Jo

Jo has gone for a fabulous clean and simple design by masking before adding Versamagic chalk ink directly to the kraft card..
Stamps used are Unity.

Clair

 Added all of her inks direct to the page, then blended them with a baby wipe to create a summer sky background. Used stamps from Bannerific and Cruising Through Life by Lawn Fawn.

 Emily
Emily used inks to colour the chipboard arrows
Paper, Alphas and twine by Lawn Fawn
Emily used the spring ditress inks over an embossed image to make a subtle background.
Alpha and twine used are by Lawn Fawn 
Embossing folder by Spellbinders
