How to watercolor with your Stampin' Up inks:

There are two ways to use your inks to watercolor on your cards.

Watercolor Method 1: Before opening up your ink pad, press the lid of the ink pad into the pad itself. Open up the ink pad and there will be a little mark of ink on the lid which you will drop some water from the Aqua Painter onto to. You will use this as your palette.Watercolor with Stampin Up ink pads
