Technique Discussion - Inking Chipboard

While cropping at my LSS a few weeks ago I got frustrated when I couldn't find any red stars to go with a layout I was working on.  I had some chipboard stars on hand but they were "undressed" and I honestly didn't have  the time to paint them or cover them with paper.  My great friend Kay Rogers came to the rescue!  She showed me a cool idea for covering undressed chipboard with ink!  Who would have thought? 

I am sure many of you have tried this but for me it was such an awesome, mess free idea that I became completely hooked on the technique!

 I started by placing my chipboard on a paper plate or you can use a scrap piece of paper or paper towel.  Pick the color ink you want to use and simply "paint" the chipboard with the ink by pressing the ink pad onto the chipboard shape.  You can make the color as dark or as light as you wish and WOW does it dry fast!  If the color dries and you are not satisfied with the tone you can darken it by adding more.

Once your shape/letters/etc are dry you can decorate them with rub ons, gems, buttons - whatever you want to complete a finished look.

 I would love to see what you do with you ink!!!  Leave me a message and a link to show me what you do!

I did a bunch of chipboard inking yesterday & just posted it in my blog. There must be a chipboard vibe going around the planet this afternoon.

I agree, this is much easier than covering with paper.
