The Riddle of the Inks…

My eyes have been spinning wildly with googly spirals. My mind has been saying “Whoa” over and over again like Joey from ‘Blossom.’ Oh, stamping ink…thy properties are confusing and overwhelming.

Inks…thou art confusing.

I have gone over my Pinterest pins with the detail of a research scientist and have compiled a list of projects capable of being made with various types of ink and other application materials. I am in great need of acquiring new inking supplies for some card making projects, so I thought I would share the results of my research efforts with you, my beloved blog readers. I have made a handy dandy chart for your (and my) convenience.

The good news is that with a little “pin” organization on my part, the whole process of deciphering which inks should be used for certain projects is not as complicated as it seems. (I just needed to come up with some evidence to wrap my head around!) Thus, in this blogger’s most humble opinion, the “Riddle of the Inks” has been solved! :> Just kidding. This list is by no means exhaustive. I’m sure I will be adding to as new products emerge, new application techniques are formulated, etc.

If this little chart is helpful to you at all, please let me know in the comments – I would love to know…and if stamping ink is really as confusing to anyone else as it is to me! :\
