This card was one I did for my Technique Tuesday classes. The faux spectrum technique is quite simple. I took a strip of white felt cut about 2" x 5" and used the reinkers to make a rainbow pad or "spectrum" pad. Be sure to put a piece of plastic under your felt before adding the ink. I used 4 reinkers for the butterflies. I used the reinkers to make about 3/8" wide strips next to each other (no white spaces). Then just use this as your stamp pad! When done stamping you can put the felt strip in a plastic bag and save it for use again. I used this technique to make a fall spectrum pad for an Autumn scrapbooking page a few years ago and the page was a hit with my customers.
