For this card making technique just take your ink pad and stamp it straight on or swipe it across your card stock in interesting ways, using one or more coordinating colors. Stamp your greeting and you're done!
In this handmade thank you card I used a couple of the retiring colors — Baja Breeze and Pretty in Pink — along with Old Olive.
I should tell you that the new ink pads may “stick” to your card stock, so don't be surprised by that.
Get out those ink pads and see what interesting patterns you can come up with!
