Hi, my friends! June is about to be ripped off the calendar! It's HOT it's Summertime, and I was feeling the need for more color in my crafty life!
I had wonderful guidance about The Stamp Market inks from my friend Marcia who recently purchased two of the purple shades that she was missing from her own collection ... it didn't take much convincing, believe me. We have similar taste, and share certain wants/requirements when it come to coverage, depth of color, and the type of pad we like the most. I trusted her judgement!
I have been, and will continue to be, a big fan of Catherine Pooler inks. The Stamp Market colors I chose fill the gaps in my CP collection, and add some really fun ones, too.
Ready to see my first play? Here you go!
I brought out that sweet stencil from The Greetery again - you all seemed to love it
as much as I do! But after stenciling, I won't waste a bit of that ink [Citrine is quickly becoming my favorite!] left on the stencil! Oh no, I just spritz the inky side and quickly flip it over onto a piece of Canson water color cold press paper - waste not, want not!
Here are the inks I used for these first two cards:
Because I also bought a few greens, and darker shades of ink, my next card is a bit more on the moody side... it reminds me of the colors used in vintage upholstery fabrics, or an Audubon painting! [see how beautifully that Citrine plays with the greens?] Jade, and Navy leaves? Yes, please!
FINALLY I've found a true, dark, saturated Navy! Here are the rest of the inks:
To all of my PNW, and friends in Northern California - stay cool, my friends, and SAFE!! Your temperatures bring new meaning to hot, Hot, HOT!!!
Thanks for your visit - and even more for leaving me your thoughts...
