    Chalk paints, color & alcohol - do not add glycerin - glycerin makes it sticky. Glycerin will make it more transparent - if you want it more opaque add white.

Make your own pigment & chalk ink video. One of the most frugal techniques requested from me is how I made my own chalk & pigment ink pads. Lindsay of the FrugalCrafter has made a video showing you how. This is the best video. Note, I do add glycerin to my chalk mixture. Lindsay leaves it out. I like the look but I did forget that chalk ink is supposed to be fast drying. If I taught you to add glycerin don't unless you want a slow drying time for a technique.

the background was made by running waxed lunch wrap in an embossing folder through the Cuttlebug, then placing the wax paper inside two pieces of cardstock and ironing with a warm iron for a short time - too long and it will 'burn off' the wax. I used water based ink pads and with a butterscotch colour rubbed it over the top of the cardstock, wiped off any excess ink with a tissue. I then carefully rubbed the vintage photo ink pad across the top to highlight the embossed image.

Best black ink pad. I get asked all the time what is the best black ink pad. This is a great article. I use all of these pads except for Soot Black from Distress. She did not cover Brilliance Ink. I love that black for stamping on vellum. I also like it for when I want my projects to have a bit of shimmer. It's a really great article and a must read.
