I put pieces of paper towels in a shallow dish and soaked in food coloring. I made my cookie dough, flattened it by dipping the bottom of a glass in sugar and pressing it...then I took my stamps (from Smeared Ink's Skelly Christmas Set), dipped them in my homemade food coloring ink pads, and stamped them into the dough. Then I baked them. This method wasn't successful. There was either too much ink or not enough. It ended up being just big blobs of color.
I used the same steps to flatten my dough. For the images this time, I stamped into the dough without the coloring. Then I took a paint brush and painted the food coloring into the indentions left by the stamps. This method looks better, but still not successful.
Like I said, if anyone has any ideas to make this work, I'm all ears! Sorry for not having something more awesome for you today, but I tried!!
