Distress Ink Swatches


I was watching Tim Holtz on Periscope and he was saying that he uses glossy cardstock to do the ink swatches for the new color of the month. So I have wanted to make ink swatches for my colors for a long time. I have tons of glossy cardstock hanging around so I decided to use it for my ink swatches. But you use the none glossy side of the paper.  I used my ink blending tool on the bottom and then swiped the ink pad on the top. I think they came out pretty well. I labeled the colors on the glossy side. By the way did you see the new color Lucky Clover yet? Such a great green color. Cant wait to get my hands on some of the new colors.

    Thank you for passing on this idea. I also have a good supply of glossy paper I could use. Now, if I could just find the time to sit and color a tag for each of my distress inks!
