Make It Monday #77 - Inkpads as Watercolors


I have ornament i made for Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday. The technique is using PTI's ink pads as watercolors. This is a favorite technique of mine, so i had to play along!

I started with a santa image, coloring it with PTI inks. Then i cut him out. I used a PTI die and cut some chipboard. I also cut some pattern paper to top the chipboard with.

I stamped the sentiment with black ink. Added the santa with pop dots. I happened to have a PTI button left over from the Stamp-a-faire, it happened to match the pattern paper i found.

I topped the button with a twine bow and adhered it to the top of the ornament.

Thanks for stopping by!!
