How to: Pair Ink Sprays with Die Cuts

How to: Pair Ink Sprays with Die Cuts

, ,

Many crafters have a love/hate relationship with ink sprays. We buy them, and then they collect dust because we just don’t know what to do with them! This technique will not only help you start using your sprays, but it will breathe new life into diecuts that you might have sitting around in your scraps bin. It’s a win-win!
