|Snap the Kaleidacolor Tomato Vine ink pad together for use.|
|Run the brayer over the pad and ink the prepared paper in both directions.|
|Spray lightly with water and allow the inks to blend together like watercolors. Dry with a heat gun.|
You control how dark or how light the ink on the gesso will be. If you feel it is too dark just spray more water on it and blot it with a paper towel. You can also lift off color with a baby wipe. I hope you'll try this technique using Memento inks. It is similar to the way I do my Art Journal pages.
Here is a list of the products and tools I used on this project.

I made a couple more cards while I had a mess on my work table, I'll share those with you tomorrow. When you're doing a project like this it is a good idea to make several different cards that can be used for all occasions. When you make several you only have to set up once and clean up once while getting multiple cards that are all different. It saves you time in the long run.
I hope you enjoyed this process. Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog, if you have a chance please leave me a comment, I love reading them! Have a great day, I'll see you next time.
