Today Tammy and I are sharing how to use Colorbox inkpads with Donna Salazar Designs products.I created this tag using several ColorBox and Clearsnap products: Smooch, ColorBox Chalk Ink, Embossing Powder, and ColorBox Pigment Ink.

Stamp the Partidge In A Pear Tree stamp on the Donna Salazar Artistic Paper using ColorBox Silver Pigment Ink.
Sprinkle the image with embossing powder–the nice thing about pigment inks is that they have a nice, opaque color but are tacky so embossing powders stick well to them.
Heat emboss the image of the tree using a Heat Gun.
Using a ColorBox Fluid Chalk Ink Cat's Eye in Lime Pastel, dab “leaves” onto the tree. The shape of the ink pad is leaf-like so it is a nice touch.
Paint the leaves with a light color of Smooch.
Dab on a dot of a darker green Smooch on a few of the leaves and then paint over it with the light Smooch again. This will blend the two colors for a more organic feeling leaf.
Paint the tree trunk and branches with Smooch as well. And paint the Partridge with Smooch in Gold Lame.
Cut a tag from Donna's Weathered Winter paper and add a border along the bottom as well as a string and bow. Cut out the tree and mount with foam adhesive. Add bling, “Merry” sentiment, and punched snowflakes.
