I have been doing a lot of stamping today, but don't really have a lot to show for it - nothing seemed to be working out to my satisfaction. Laura Bassen demo'd a great card using Avery Elle's "Rounded Diamonds" to create a beautiful rainbow coloured flower. I did make my own version, but was not happy with the way my inks were stamping this solid stamp. First I tried Hero Arts Shadow inks, but find when they are fully dry, while they even out beautifully, the colours are muted and almost muddy looking where they overlap each other. So, next I tried my SU! colours which were definitely brighter, but were way blotchier. AAARGH! I am in the market for new inks, but don't know what to invest in. I am intrigued by SSS inks, but know they are formulated the same way as Her Arts, so I am not sure I want to invest in them. Any advice? Here is the card...
For this one I covered the darker inside shape with clear wink of stella to brighten it up a bit.
Anyway... Thanks for stopping by - As always I love to hear your feedback!
