I have several Kaleidacolor Ink pads but have not used any of them in probably years.  When our group gathered in Des Moines this past June,  one of the ladies stamped this design using the Autumn Leaves Kaleidacolor pads.  What a fun way to use those inks.  Several of us stamped off images from her stamp. 
I hope I can explain how we did this.  We held the ink pad vertically and as we stamped, we rotated only the top of the ink pad in kind of a semi-circle direction.  So the green ink on this image stayed pretty much in the same spot all the time.  (Is that clear?) 
When I got home, I added the little butterfly with an orange ink that matched the image.  The Archiver's employees had given each of us a great bag with some goodies inside. (They love that we come as a group every year and spend.)  The orange ribbon was one of the goodies inside my bag and worked so well with this image.  I then added this layer to the Chocolate Chip SU card base.
Thank you for stopping by!  Hope you come back again on Monday!

How pretty. Yup they are in my pile as well. Wasn't it fun to dig out those inks again?

I picked up some of those kolida color pads at rummage sales...I've use them but you've inspired me to bring them out for another inking. Thanks for the explanation on the inking technique, I will give it a try!


I am in Des Moines this week with six of my friends who meet each year in June.  We will be spending a lot of time sharing our toys, sho...
