Circle Embellishments with Dabbers & Inks!

Happy Wednesday everyone! Lisa here and today I wanted to share a little project using the JBS Paint Dabbers and Ink Pads by Ranger:

One of my favorite things about these new paints & inks is how well they coordinate across various mediums. You don't have to worry if the Soap Powder paint is going to match the Soap Powder ink - the paints and inks are wonderfully consistent in their color! On this page, I used the paint dabbers to make custom-colored cardstock circles and topped them with matching stamped butterflies:


This is a simple technique to do - just grab your paint dabbers and the matching ink pads.

Apply the various paint dabbers to a piece of plain white cardstock:

Once the paint is dry, use a circle cutter or punch to cut out your circles:

Then use the matching stamp ink to stamp your image on white cardstock:
(ink colors, from top to bottom: Chicken Feed, Soap Powder, Lemon Drops, Cough Syrup, and Chewing Gum)

Then trim out the stamped images and adhere them to the circles (I used foam squares) and embellish with a pearl button:

So what can you do with the JBS paint dabbers and inks? The possibilities are endless! We'd love to see your creations, so be sure to share them by posting in the JBS Mercantile Gallery. Happy Scrapping!
Pin It!
