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.

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.
