Adirondack® Pigment Inks

Paper Crafting with Adirondack Pigment Inks

Step 1: Prime a 6×6” chipboard book page with Claudine Hellmuth Studio Gesso and let dry. Working from light to dark colors, apply Lemonade, Sunshine Yellow and Butterscotch Adirondack Pigment Ink Pads directly to the chipboard by patting the pads on the surface. Use a piece of Inkssentials™ Cut ‘N Dry Foam to blend the ink where the colors meet.


Step 2: Using Lettuce Adirondack® Pigment Ink, stamp a tree image in the background.


Step 3: On white cardstock, apply four different Adirondack Light Pigment inks in sections. (The photo just shows one out of the four colors of ink.) Let dry. Use the coordinating Earthtone Pigment Ink to stamp a small image over each Light color. (Coordinating Color Chart) Apply Ranger Clear Embossing powder and heat emboss with the Inkssentials™ Heat it™ Craft Tool. With Cut ‘N Dry Foam, apply the coordinating Bright Pigment Ink over each image from the outside edges allowing the Light colors to show through in the centers. Cut each image to small squares.


Step 4: Die cut 4 postage stamp frames out of chipboard. Color the frames using Pitch Black Adirondack Pigment Ink. Adhere the stamped/embossed images on the centers of the postage stamp frames. Glue each image to the background using Inkssentials™ Glossy Accents™. Let dry.


Step 5: Die cut circles of chipboard and craft copper sheeting. Adhere the chipboard and metal together using Glossy Accents and let dry. Pound the metal with a Tim Holtz® Texture Hammer. Apply Lettuce Pigment ink directly to metal. Let dry. Swipe Pitch Black Pigment ink over the metal. Wipe off the excess ink to reveal an aged patina effect. Stamp a title using Pitch Black Pigment inks and heat emboss with Ranger Black Embossing Powder.


Step 6: Glue down the metal embellishments and the title. Use the finished project as a book cover.
