AWESOME...Archival...

I'm back from the Great Lakes Mega Meet &
MEGA it was...

there were 8500 pre-registered for the event...
and that does not include those who purchased their ticket @ the door...

so...I hope you can see the name was right...
it really was MEGA...

lots of stamps, art parts, books, tim's idea-ology & Ranger goodies went home to new homes...

next stop on this art adventure is The Scrapbooking Studio in Moline, Illinois...

this Saturday (May 14th) I'll be teaching a Ranger MEGA workshop called

Ranger INKS, studio 490 style...
it is my MOST FAVORITE class to teach...
ever...

as of Saturday 34 seats were taken, leaving only 2 more...

but...my reason for this quick post is to show you something I have been eagerly waiting for...

NO...It's NOT the other 24 tim distress stains...

when you see a post in ALL CAPS (meaning that I'm shouting),
you'll know that we're getting the other 24 colors...
still got my fingers crossed...

but I AM VERY excited to tell you that
RANGER IS GIVING US ...

NEW ARCHIVAL COLORS...

if you are a frequent blog reader, you'll know that I LOVE the archival inks & use them on every project...

I LOVE them because when dry, they are waterproof & fade resistant...
I know for certain, that I can add any waterbased product over them & my stamped image will not bleed...
(think tim's distress ink or stains, Perfect Pearls Mists)...
over the archival...

they are the basic go to ink for stamping on art parts, grunge, chipboard, Claudine's sticky back canvas, paper, cardstock & even metal...

here's the revised/updated packages and the AWESOME yummy colors...



you can see that there is now a color for ALL our needs...

the original colors are...
COBALT, COFFEE, JET BLACK, LIBRARY GREEN, OLIVE, PLUM, SEPIA & SIENNA...

the 16 NEW ARTISTIC colors are...
CHROME YELLOW,
MANGANEGE BLUE,
VERMILLION,
EMERALD GREEN,
DEEP PURPLE,
VENITIAN ORANGE,
AQUAMARINE,
BLUE VIOLET,
SAFFRON,
PALE OCHRE,
MAGENTA HUE,
ROSE MADDER,
SAP GREEN,
VIRIDIAN,
MONARCH ORANGE
AND FRENCH ULTRAMARINE...

I'm thinking AWESOME for background stamping...

these are shipping in MAY...
so be watching for them...
I'll keep you posted...

I'm sure I NEED EVERY COLOR
of these new archival inks to...

make art!
