My New Favourite Ink Pad


This short post is all in aid of me discovering my new favourite ink colour! I've always loved purples and pinks but what about that lovely grey colour? This is the Tim Holtz distress ink in Pumice Stone, which I have seriously fallen in love with - just ask the girls at craft group! Sorry that I've also make others buy it... Initially it just looks like a muddy grey, or like concrete, but it goes with so many colour combinations. I also used Milled Lavender Distress, and Wild Plum Memento inks on the above image, and I love the colour combination. It'll be appearing many more times on projects methinks.

I've got some similar stamps to these so I may 'adapt' if that's okay with you? And you're right that ink pad, for such an odd colour, is fabulous! So glad i found that one when i got home x
