Ink Band

I was browsing Pinterest while in my craft room today and came across a very sweetly simple card by Heather Telford. It had a band of three colors applied directly from the inkpad to the paper, and then stamped with black ink.

Here's my version:

Place a white panel onto the Club Scrap Desk Blotter and mask an area with Eclipse Tape from Judikins. The printed grid on the desk blotter really helps to keep everything perfectly level.
Apply Topaz, Leaf and Lagoon inks to the panel, directly from the pad.
Stamp an image onto the inked area. I used the new Club Stamp unmounted image from Full Circle, to be released on Monday. Remove the mask tape.
Stamp a greeting beneath the inked band with India Black ink. (This silly greeting is also from the Club Stamp Full Circle collection.)
I sorted through my paper stash for coordinating colors and added some crystal stickers, too. Fun stuff! I'm going to keep going! Get off of Pinterest and make something!
