Hi all! Its been a while I know, but I’m finally finished with my German certification exam (I’ll know my results in September…) so I now have a little more time to craft. In 2 weeks time, when the kids go back to school, I’ll have even more time, in-between my new job, of course, but after having daily german classes, work and my kids at home, just working will seem like a holiday!In today’s post, I want to share some new inks from Spectrum Noir. They are called Harmony Opaque pigment inks and are amazing fade-free colour inks with a rich, slow-drying consistency, giving you time to manipulate the shades.
What makes these inkpads unique is their “sticky”, slow-drying texture, which will allow you to take your time adding embossing powders to give them a shiny enamel-like finish. These water-based, acid-free and fully archival ink pads are available in 36 colours, ready to co-ordinate and combine.
I ordered just three to test how they were and I now regret I didn’t buy more in the beginning. They glide onto paper really easily and give so much coverage…and they’re so juicy!I made a little video to show you how I made my card, which you can find at the bottom of my post. I used Crafters Companion Crocus Collection layering stamp, which is a beautiful set of 3 stamps, each adding a fabulous dimensional effect to the stamped image. I love this stamp set and will definitely be using it again with my watercolours and alcohol markers.Here you can see the shine and enamel look my card has after I heat embossed it with Wow embossing clear powders. My daughter said it had a very “royal” look to it!
As promised, the video of the making of my card. I hope you enjoy it! If you do try the inks, I would love to know what you think of them. I have already put in my second order for more of these inks!
Thanks for dropping by and have a great day!
