Honestly, I did do week 3: Perfect Pearls and Distress Ink but I didn't have time to finish off the project before the end of the challenge. So I'll be finishing them up later. But I did move right into Week 4 which was to use Archival Ink.
Allow me to post the disclaimer: I own only 3 Archival Ink pads (and one I just bought a couple months ago at a stamp show!). I own Jet Black, Tree Branch, and Watering Can...black, a brown, and a grey. For waterproof ink, I use mainly Stazon and I have the basic colors I need. Most of the stamps I own are like the one above...they only need to be stamped in black. I own silhouettes and outlines. I realized that I don't stamp images in color...I use color in the background or to color in the image.
I recently got interested in Layering stamps...those stamp sets that are 3 layers of the same image...Like AltNew's wonderful flowers. I have about three of them and see another that I love. For these sets of stamps, I will need colored inks. Since these are clear stamps, I'm also looking for an ink that works well with those types of stamps. I'll let you know how my recent Lawn Fawn purchase of orange inks works out!
So enough chat, here's the set of cards I made with Distress Inks and Archival Jet Black:
I thought the quote was appropriate as the person in the image may be walking toward you or away from you.
That's it. Got my hands inky and had some fun!
