So here are my most current photos of my ink collection.
|Brilliance Inks have a lovely shimmer to them, and of |
course I need to add the silver Delicata to the collection.
The gold is just scrumptious!
|Yellow, orange, pink, red, and neutral pigment inks.|
I use happily Memento Luxe, VersaMagic, and Fresh Ink
interchangeably for that thick, rich pigment look
|Purple, blue, and green pigment inks|
|Kaleidacolor pads. These dye pads are so much fun!|
|What's left of my SU dye ink collection: all the old-|
style, flip-top pads. Great colors every one!
|Miscellaneous pads that I hardly ever use.|
|Blue and green dye inks. My favorites are Hero Arts, Memento,|
and Ancient Page. The Memories inks are the same as Hero inks.
|Pink, Red, and Purple dye inks.|
|Yellow, orange, and neutral dye inks.|
BTW, I like having my inks in plastic drawers stored on my desk within an easy arm's reach. I can pull out a drawer, stack them on my desk, put them back. It's light-weight, easy, and a cinch to straighten up afterwards.
I reflected yesterday, as I deep-cleaned my craft space, that ink is a necessary supply for me...lots of ink in lots of colors. It actually gets used all the time. While some of my supplies might have been over-bought in too many colors (Smooch, Stickles, baker's twine, ribbon, etc.), I don't feel I have too many colors of ink.
Which probably makes me certifiably crazy. But I don't care.
Anyway, today's card uses Memento black, VersaMagic jumbo java, and Avery Elle mango inks, along with a few Copic/Bic/Sharpie markers and some brown Stickles. That seems like a lot for such a simple, clean card, doesn't it?
Today, Flag Day, is my wedding anniversary. Twenty-nine years. This is odd, because that means we got married as infants. We. Are. Not. That. Old.
I'm still thirty. Right?
Denial is a river that runs deep and wide.
