I'm also letting you into the secret of how the bears manage to keep their paws clean despite their inky exploits - rubber gloves!
I folded, dripped ink into the creases, unfolded, refolded to an undecorated creased edge, re inked.......until I achieved this effect, wow.
I then tried the technique as suggested in the magazine, with paper and distress stains. Ooh I like that too. I would suggest maybe letting your paper dry between folds though, as the constant squidging of distress stains onto thin paper makes for a very flimsy substrate!
I do love to craft in the garden on sunny days, don't you?
Once the cardstock and paper were dry, I rubbed distress ink over the white areas.
What a great technique. I do love Craft Stamper magazine for inspawration.
Now I just need to use these creations in a project or two. Why don't you have a go and see what effects you can produce? It's great fun.
With love from the bears
