JBS Ranger with Dina Wakley

I know we're all super-excited about Jenni's new Ranger products--I've been swooning ever since the big announcement! I got a chance this week to play with the daubers & ink pads, and oh my, I am in love. Here are some of the ways I used the daubers:

Bought some 99-cent wooden square plaques at the craft store & painted them with the daubers. I actually used a brush for this--I just took the top off the dauber & stuck the brush right into the paint. The paint is high-quality and opaque, and it gives good coverage with one thin coat. It dries fast, too. I painted one plaque with Soap Powder (blue) and one with Lemon Drops (yellow), and then used the foam tip of the Brown Sugar dauber to antique the edges. Really fast & easy!

Skimmed the foam tip around the edge of a layout to add a painty border. I always ink my edges with ink pads, but I really liked using the daubers. The paint blends with all the JBS paper well, and it dries quickly.

Put a thin layer of dauber paint right onto my patterned paper & let it dry, then journaled onto it...voila, instant journaling square!I can't wait to see how you use the daubers, too!

  6. so so gorgeous...all of them! :)

  7. I got a question concerning the re-inkers. Will they work similar as the re-inkers to the Ranger Distress ink pads?

    The reason to my Q is that I use the Distress re-inkers when I paint and color stuff and some of these, your new colors are just stunning. I would love to color stuff with them.

    Oh! the ink, will it be waterproof?
