Swatch Series #2

Hello Fantabulous Readers and welcome to another Quick Tip Tuesday! Like I mentioned in last week's Quick Tip, I'll be showing you fun ways to use swatch books to organize and get your crafty mojo going on! In this week's tip, I'll be showing you how swatch books can be used showcase your distress inks!

I found both of these talented crafters via Pinterest. 

# 1: Kottens from Scrapbook.com created this amazing swatchbook to display her collection of distress inks.  
On her post she describes:
"Lessons learned from my old one: I used eyelets and a ballchain, thinking it would last longer. It was very clumpsy to use. Not easy to make a tight pad of it. So this time I used some ribbon. 
It's always nice to see the stamped image on a white background, so I only used an ink blending tool on half of the tag. I remember I've seen something like that before."

#2: Ink Stains Roni did something similar. Here's a closer look.
