whoa. have you tried these? the Memento Luxe inks - TO. DIE. FOR. i'm seriously loving them. they're juicy without being too wet, they're wonderfully opaque and give amazing coverage. and i have 4, and i need to have ALL. OF. THEM. they're available now, but they're in HOT demand at Crafter's Companion. you might wanna CLICK HERE to check 'em out.
i made a card using the gorgeous Majestic Oak (from Sheena's A Little Bit Sketchy line) and stamped it onto my patterned paper using Espresso Truffle.
distressed my edges and used Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress
inks around the edges (always my go-to combo for that perfectly aged paper look), then added super minimal embellies. the stamp is
fab. the INK. ermahgerd. just TRUST ME.
and then i proceeded to stamp out 8 more of The Majestic Oak, with the intention of making retirement, congrats, birthday and thinking of you cards. you'll be seeing lots more of this one, folks. :)
SO. there's a new challenge up at the Crafter's Companion blog... i'll be sharing my project soon, but you might wanna hop on over to check it out! lots of inspiration to be found over there - the U.S. and U. K. teams make for quite a collaborative force! :)
