Sliding Ink Technique

Technique Time.  This cool love cat was created using a simple technique I'm calling "sliding ink".  Ink  a solid image then slide the ink across the stamp to create a pattern in the ink, then stamp onto the cardstock.   Video:     My Stampin' Up! project supply list is below.
