These Gift Notes (p 169) come 30 to a pack - 10 each of 3 colors - and are perfect for a quick workshop project. I was surprised I could not find any in the SCS galleries, so I decided to start what I hope is a trend!
I used the Rolling Marbles technique to make the background. Just put a few drops of reinker in a plastic storage box (I use the boxes that my bg stamps come in), and add a few glass marbles. Stick the card stock to the lid and close the box. Holding the box closed, roll the marbles around in the bottom of the box until they are inked, then flip the box over and roll the marbles over the card stock. When it looks right, flip the box back over, open the lid and remove the card stock. Repeat for as many colors as you'd like to use. I used three here, so I have three boxes - one for each color.
The boxes just rinse out when you are done. My customers loved this so much the last time, I decided to do it again this month.
Last time I included a box with gold Encore reinker that they used as their last color, then we clear-embossed that. It looks really nice!
