What is 'direct to paper'?

Have you heard of this technique, but don't know how to do it? It's actually very simple! "Direct to paper" means that you don't use a stamp, but apply the ink directly onto your paper. This works well if you are using the smaller ink pads, such as the Color Box line of Cats Eye and Petal Point pads. Color Box styluses as well as daubers and other tools may also be used to transfer color. This technique is most commonly used to create backgrounds. The best results come from using 2-3 colors.
