After LEAVING A COMMENT ON MY BLOG(for a chance to win that stamp set) then head over to Ally's blog at www.yourmemoriescanada.blogspot.com
For my blurb in this blog hop, I am going to show you the look of different brand named inks when used with my Stamp Box stamps.
For layout #1
"mini smurf in training''
I used my Stamp BOX ''lots of dots'' and ''she says-he says'' stamps
along with doodlebug design inc(blue) and Ranger adironack(black)
Honestly, these 2 inks are my absolute favourites to use with acrylic stamps, because you get good coverage, they are easy to clean(wont stain the stamps) and they are nice and dark.
Layout #2 ''Grateful''
I used my Stamp BOX "splash me a little" and "funky flowers" along with Tim Holtz distress ink and KI Memories(envy) and Tsukineko's glue pad(with doodlebug glitter)
I LOVE using Tim Holtz ink with these stamps(another favourite) but to be honest, Im not a huge fan of the KI Memories ink(i find they show up too light with acrylic) and the glue pad stresses me out..lol I NEVER get total coverage with it.
For my florida mini album, I used my Stamp BOX "she says-he says" with Tsukinenko versamagic(cloud white) and have always been happy using this ink pad with acrylic stamps.
I also have good luck with Stampin' up inks and Staz on(although they stain my stamps)
The only other ink pad Im not a huge fan of is Autumn Leaves made especially for acrylic stamps.
Thanks for stopping by my blog..Don\t forget to leave a comment on here, before heading to Ally's blog at www.yourmemoriescanada.blogspot.com
Best of luck
