One Layer for Less is More

I just love the Less Is More Challenges... because well they are just so challenging! hehehe!  This challenge was no different: Use 3 of something and it all has to be one layer...
So recently I bought some refill inks that I don't have the stamp pads for (I know right now you are scratching your heads, but they were on a great deal and I loved the colors), so I have been racking my brain on how to use them... I finally came up with my answer:



Supplies Used:
Refill Inks by Stampin Up! and Ranger
Stamps: Technique Tuesdays
Ink: Memories Black

* I'm also entering this into the Frosted Designs Stamp Challenge. And the Stamp N Plus Challenge #2 anything goes!
I LOVE IT!!!  All I did was hold my refill bottles sideways and make a slight line with my wrist where I wanted the ink to go... be careful to not lay it too far on its side or too much comes out, and DO NOT SQUEEZE, yikes!  I'd love to see what you make if you try this technique or not so make sure to let me know if you do!  Have a fabulous day, and tomorrow you might want to make sure you stop by for a little wink wink nudge nudge.... hey keep your mind out of the gutter I'm talking crafty goodies hehehe!
Happy Crafting!

Great idea for using those re-inkers! I especially like the contrast you created by pairing the bright inks with a mellow black & white card. Very creative indeed.

This technique made such a cool background for this stamp. Love the bright splotches of colour next to the black and white image and sentiment. Very fun. Thanks for joining us in our Anything Goes Challenge at Stamp N Plus.
