    Welcome to this episode of Ink It Up with Jessica TV. I'm Jessica Taylor and
    in this video I'm going to show you how to color with your aqua painters on
    pre-printed designer series paper with your classic dye inks. I'm starting with
    a pre-printed designer series paper. This is from the Petal Passion pack from
    Stampin' Up! so the paper just comes black and white and it's perfect for coloring
    on. That way you can use it with any of your different colors of cardstock. So
    today I'm going to show you how to color it with your aqua painter and a Classic
    Stampin' Pad which is a dye ink. So first you're going to want to put a little bit of
    water in your Aqua Painter and I don't like to have it full, I like to have just
    a little bit in there so I don't get too messy and you'll want a scratch piece of
    paper that you can wipe your aqua Painter off on and a Classic Stampin' Pad
    like I said. To get some ink in the lid of your ink pad you want to just squeeze
    the lid down, kind of squeeze your ink pad together first, so that when you open
    it you'll see that there is ink pooled in the lid and that's the ink I'm going
    to use to color. So I'm just going to give my Aqua Painter a tiny squeeze to get a
    little bit of water down in the brush and then I'll pick up some of that ink
    and use it to color on my flowers. Now I'm not going to be real exact, I'm just
    going to kind of lay down some color and you can come back and add more but if
    you go too dark it's harder to take away so it's better to go a little bit
    on the lighter side then to do it too dark. But I'm just going to go ahead and
    color in all of the flowers this way.
    Once you're done coloring all of your flowers you're just going to run your Aqua
    Painter on your scratch paper until you get all the color out of it. So just run
    it till it's clear and then you can switch to the green color for the leaves.
    I don't know if I mentioned, but I used Berry Burst for my flowers and I'm going
    to use Lemon Lime Twist for my leaves. So again I'm going to just squeeze my ink
    pad together to get that ink pooled in the lid and then I'll just pick up some
    of that ink and color in my leaves. If you find that you need a little more
    water you just need to squeeze your Aqua Painter just a tiny bit.
    When you're done coloring everything just be sure to wipe off your Aqua
    Painter until it's clear again so that it's ready it to use for the next time.
    Also, when you're storing your Aqua Painter you want to store it up so that
    any water is stored down here and not falling down into the brush of the Aqua
    Painter while you're storing it. So always store it up like this. For this
    card once my flowers were dry I added a little bit of Wink of Stella. This is a
    glitter brush so I added these just to the flowers and this just adds a little
    bit of glitter, a little extra shimmer and shine. So to put this card together
    I used a Berry Burst card base, this is a finished size of four and a quarter by
    five and a half so it's just eight and a half by five and a half paper folded in
    half. My Basic Black card piece is three and a quarter inches by four and a
    quarter inches and this flower piece is three by four inches. Then I just added
    my circle greeting with dimensionals on top of that. So if you would like to make
    12 of this card out of one sheet of 12 by 12 paper you're going to want to
    watch my Quick Cards from 12x12 paper video for how to do that.
    It's really quick and easy and a great way to use up your 12 by 12 paper to
    make beautiful cards! Thanks so much for watching. I hope that you'll give this
    technique a try and if you like this video please hit the thumbs up button
