I decided to go down the Male route for my card this week and dug out my favorite set One Wild Ride. Every crafter should have this stamp in their collection. It's perfect for all ages and suitable for every man in your life.
I found my Lemon Lime Twist ink pad was super juicy (which can happen with new ink) and I wasn't getting a crisp enough image. The ink was soaking into all the fine lines. Now there are a few ways that you can make you ink pads less juicy. I usually blot it up with some kitchen roll and then use the back of a spoon to massage the ink around the pad. But today I didn't want to get up and go in hunt for everything so I went to my next tip, which is to put the ink on the stamp with a finger dauber. This means you can be light or as heavy as you want to and don't end up with that inky, blotchy look.
We have a few male birthday's coming up in our household this month, so I think I'll be making up this card a few more times yet!!
Now it's time for you to go, check out what the other super talented girls have done with these challenging colours.
