Hello everyone! Popping in to share a couple more ink charts following the Memento Ink Color Chart (Including a generic blank chart).
Thanks JJ and Jingle for introducing me to these beautiful inks! I am still in the process of collecting all the colors. Makes you wanna get inky just by looking at them, right? ;)
(Click on the photos to view them on Flickr.)
First one up, Fresh Inks. Available at Impress Rubber Stamps.
These are pigment inks with good coverage when the pads are juicy. As you can see in the photo, a couple of my pads were dry when they first arrived. So if you like a color a lot, try to get the re-inker as well. My favorite colors are: Mango (yellow), Fuchsia(hot pink), Peach (light orange), Tomato Red (orange red) and Pool (light teal green).
Then, VersaMagic. (I punched a 1″ square from black cardstock for the white ink.)
These are chalk inks that can be used on paper, clay, wood, shrink plastic and leather. They have a chalky finish with some beautiful muted colors. My favorites are: Pink Petunia (smoky pink), Red Brick (smoky red), Aegean Blue (smoky navy) and Oasis Green (smoky teal green).
And last, Brilliance and VersaFine (the last two rows) inks.
I was surprised by how vibrant the brilliance inks are! And the pearlescent colors are very beautiful in real life. My favorites are: Rocket Red – Gold (a warm pink with gold shine), Rocket Red (my favorite Christmas red), Lightning Black (dark gray with gold shine), and Graphite Black (real black). It will take some time for the Brilliance inks to dry.
VersaFine Onyx Black is my favorite ink for sentiments. It gives good coverage, crisp images and dries fast on uncoated paper. I went ahead and got all of the 12 colors. They are darker than I thought so I need to play with them more to say what my favorites are.
I bought my Tsukineko inks (Memento, Stazon, VersaFine, VersaMagic and Brilliance) from local Jo-ann’s and Ellen Hutson, the latter has all of the Memento and VersaFine colors with fast shipping and excellent customer service.
