Ink Pad Experiment #2

You might recall that I mentioned I was wanting to invest in some colored ink pads, but am not sure what brand I want so I'm testing some to see which brand best meets my needs. If you missed that blog post, you can check it out - HERE

I'm wanting dye inks that blend smoothly with blender brushes but are also suitable for stamping. 

For today's card I used Catherine Pooler Ink Pads. I happened to have two colors of them (Cranberry Fizz and Rockin' Red), both in the red family so I used both of them along with a Maker Forte Stencil (Rose Border).

These ink pads blended very nicely and Catherine Pooler has a large assortment of colors.

I still have a few brands to try before I decide which I like best.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

testing testing 1, 2, 3! Such a striking card ~ the red is definitely unique and bold. I have the green combo Catherine Pooler inks - I think I've only reached for them twice. Good luck deciding!
