Glad you showed the gold ink because I could remember from the video what you used. I don't have that ink so I guess I better order me some pronto. Thank you for posting the tutorial!!

Hey Vicki, why do you use a DIY pad for the gold ink when it has it's own ink pad? Love the card, and yes, I need the ink too! LOL...

I love the gold ink offset on the black. Why did you make a custom blend ink pad instead of just using the Staz On inkpad?

the ink pad is a sponge and i find it over inks the stamp
