Reinking, Reading Fast, and Working with Groovy Colors!



There is a wonderful video to show you how it can be done. 


There are two colors of reinkers in this card (black and brown).




I found out that I didn't have to get the ink on the foam "just right" for this one.  

I just made sure there was black on the top and brown on the bottom in a circle large enough for the stamp to fit in.  



I dabbed the extra ink off and was pleased with the "half and half" shot of this lovely image.


I tried to amp up the color a bit around the image with colors inspired by ColourQ's Challenge #92.  




Check out these groovy colors! ;)
