Distress Inks, a SplodgeAway Mat and Indigo Blu Stamps.

The Completed Tag
Hi ya bloggers... This is a picture tutorial with just a few words! A Distress Inks Tag using some Indigo Blu Stamps and a SplodgeAway Mat.

Picture 3 SplodgeAway Mat and Blending Tools
 Picture 3.Using a Blending Tool and a SplodgeAway Mat you apply the inks directly from the ink pad onto the mat itself, then use the blending tool to ‘buff’ the ink into a wide but evenly spread area on it’s special surface. This gives you an even distribution of colour that allows you to blend your colours without the dreaded lines. I use a circular motion, sweeping off across the surface of the mat onto the Tag.
