inks follow-up...

thanks so much for all the comments on the last inky blog post...

I'm happy to answer questions & I'm really happy that I could help clarify some ink properties...

here's one more question, 
prompted by the last post...

"Do we save the plastic cover on the Glacier White pad or is it for shipping purposes only?"

it's called a vapor barrier & it's there to help keep the pad moist...
so save it!

it IS an annoying little critter, 
but it serves a valuable purpose...
keeping the pad moist...

one other bit of info...
don't pop dot it to the lid, like I did...
that doesn't allow it to sit ON the pad & do it's job...

and one more thing...
yikes...once I start talking about inks, I can't quit...

pigment pads need to be reinked 
more often than 
distress or archival pads...

so...you will want to have 
for sure!

if you already have the snow cap white pad, it IS the same as glacier white...
same exact formulation...
just a name change & rebranding...

ok...
moving on to the winner of these...



congrats to...

Thank you for clarifying the inks - I know it's hard since so 
many "rules" only work sometimes :)

the background is the archival/rubbing alcohol technique using my new tea rose and sky blue archival inks on a manila cardstock page...


I'm allowing myself 45 minutes to play, then it's time to hit the TO*DO list...
we'll see how much happens in that short play period...
I'm THE SLOWEST

It is so very tempting to throw out that plastic clear cover... and unfortunately, I learned the lesson the hard way years ago by tossing one. Congrats to Christi!

What a difference the paper makes! This sheet looks more like you applied Distress Inks with the blending tool. I never would've guessed it was the alcohol technique!
