ColorBox Blends are a pigment ink applicator that works by pressing the valve in the center of the sponge on a flat surface. Every time the valve is depressed, it releases a dot of ink. On a non-stick mat, randomly dot the ColorBox Blends inks matching the paper you are using. When you have an area about 8” x 8” covered, spray with water mister so that colors begin to merge together. Take your white cards and place on the colors. Cover your cards with desired amount of ink- these can be very random. There is no right or wrong here- have fun and play with it. Flip card and repeat. When you run out of ink or it starts to look muddy, wipe up and make a new color palette. Repeat until all cards are done. Use a heat gun if desired to speed drying time.
Add words, stamps, or photos to the cards. You can fit about six cards, depending on how dimensional they are. Tuck cards in box!
