This is Steph Ackerman, a design team member for Ann Butler Designs and I’m going to show you how to paint with Crafter’s ink using a fun snowman design on a simple canvas tote bag.  The design team is taking over the Clearsnap blog I’m excited to share how I used Crafter’s Inks as paint on this canvas snowman tote bag.

I found this cute canvas snowman tote bag in a local store and decided to paint it with Ann Butler’s Crafters Inks.  Be sure to place a piece of cardboard inside so the ink does not leak through the canvas.

Steps on How to Paint with Crafter’s Ink: 

Place a few drops of Crafter’s Ink Reinkers on an acrylic block. Since the ink is liquid, simply dip a paint brush in the colors and paint the tote bag.  I used Aquamarine on the snowflakes, Limelight on the scarf and Tangelo on his nose.

I painted his hat with Canyon Ink as I did not have a reinker.  I used a little bit of water on my brush to smooth out the ink.  I did the same to add stripes to the scarf.
