The booglie eyes on this ghost-guy cracks me!  I think he's my favorite character in this set by Kim Hughes. *chuckle*

I'm really liking two inks of late:

Adirondack Snow Cap (Pigment)–this stuff really is BOMB on dark card stock!  I used it to stamp the background, and I just set it aside to dry (no heat-setting, no thermal embossing) while I worked on the rest of the card.  Now, I haven't had a chance to test it on printed card stock, but I 'fout fell off my chair, I was that impressed with this white ink's performance on my initial tests with dyed card stock.

The other ink is Archival Jet Black, which is great for when you want to use water-based coloring mediums (watercolors, watercolor pencils, water-based markers, etc.). I love dye inks, but, often times the black doesn't stamp as deep/intense as I'd like.  I *really* liked how this ink stamped with red rubber images, but I was not expecting to also be this happy with how it inked up Kim's stamps, which are of high-grade photopolymer (not vinyl)!

Anyhoo, I'm always tickled when I find another ink to love, and just wanted to share!

The video shows an easy technique for working with large background stamps, and for creating "motion" with a stamped image.  You can watch it here, or on YouTube!

Have a wondermous day!



Supplies & Materials: (I tend to dump all my bottles of iridescent glitter together into a plastic tub; the seam binding ribbon used in this design was actually from my stash, but a similar color is in a tri-color package by 7 Gypsies, or you could use white and custom tint it)
