Ink Pad Experiment #6

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 Altenew ink pads. 

I used a stencil and two shades of green ink pads to make the background. I also used an Altenew stamp/die set on the card.

These ink pads blended nicely, but I'm not a fan of oval ink pads so this will not be on my short list. (Please don't hate me... it's just my preference for me. Oval ones are more difficult for me to handle.)

That being said, I really do like the way this card turned out.

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

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Your card is beautiful, Jeanette. As a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I stick to Stampin' Up! ink pads. I do buy special ones, like distress inks and such, but for the main ink pads I stay with SU. I like that they coordinate and match my cardstock and DSP, plus the re-inkers are not expensive. Good Luck!

Absolutely gorgeous, Jeanette!!
