I’m slowly getting used to the whole idea of getting messy. LOL. These Izink inks are pretty fun – I’m really intrigued by the possibilities!
Izink Acrylic Pigment Inks
I was blessed to receive some Izink colors from the good folks at Clearsnap so I could try them out and see what they do. I’ve been seeing them pop up around the web, and was just curious. Acrylic. Pigment. Yet watercolor. I needed to test it, I didn’t believe it was true! Which is another thing I’m slowly getting used to; do you remember the days when I never wanted to get inky and test things? I think I’ve been taken over by aliens!
If you’d like to see what these inks’ properties are, check out the video below – or click HERE to watch in HD on YouTube! And see below for a list of which inks have that lovely irridescence to them. #nomnom shiny!
I really do love the quote for the art journal page, too.
Forget about GOOD.
Good is a known quantity.
Good is what we all agree on.
Stick to good and you’ll never have growth.
So many times I feel like we settle for good. We strive for average. When really we need to shoot past good. Past what we think we can do. The good is the enemy of the great…because it lets us stop. right. there. #preachingovernow 🙂
The story about the bunnies
I talk to my stamps, as you know. And ever since THIS post where I used a stamp in the Wishing You set as a “sad” bunny sitting in monkeypoop (ya gotta watch the video, it makes more sense than this sounds!), I was feeling bad for using them in a “mean” setting! I knew I had to post something to counter any bad mojo I would have left on the stamps….so that’s what I did here on today’s cards. LOL. Sorry, bunnies! See, you have my heart.
As I showed in the video, some Izink colors are iridescent or pearlized, and others are just glossy. If you’re looking for just a few colors and want to choose one or the other, here’s how the 26 colors break down:
- Iridescent : Amethist, Cactus Citronelle, Gold, Mango, Opaline, Orchid, Silver, Topaz, Tulip, and Volubilis.
- Glossy: Avocado, Ambre, Anemone, Bamboo, Gentian, Geranium, Iris, Jasmine, Lotus, Mimosa, Orchid, Rose, Safran, Tomato, Tulip, Turquoise
I did a superfast Periscope broadcast today to show the difference in how the Izink and Brusho work in painting roses. Below are the cards that came out of that, with this perfect sentiment that’s on my new ohmygoshIamgoingtouseitalot list…watch it HERE for only 24 hours (until Tuesday am)!
