I have very few pigment inks, so all my creations were limited to the colors I own. I have all the Versamark Dew drop inks on order and should see them in about a week... all 36 colors! I'm really excited by this. So, my sad collection of pigment inks were dusted off for this first for me.
What a fun set. I really like how the images themselves lend to simple designs. Here's my first card with the strawberries. I think this is what sold me on the set. I love that image! I added my ColorBox pigments to show what inks I had available. Sad, isn't it? I think I need to go shopping!
It became obvious to me that the dye inks will not work for acrylic stamps... very quickly in my experiments. The chalk and pigment inks do a fabulous job coating the acrylic and stamp very cleanly.
I really liked this card! The boot in green was a MUST! And the large violet primas that I just bought (another first for me) seemed perfect for this card. I used a small swatch of lavendar dotted grosgrain ribbon from a recent share. I like this card!
Here is a group shot of all the cards I managed to make this weekend with this set. They are bright (again not my usual - just the limits of my inks), but very fun. I like the other Papertrey sets too. Maybe I'll just have to check out the other ones!
