I love the feel, the look, the ease of a wood mounted stamp. Yet, I hear the siren song of . . . ACRYLICS! At first I danced a bit with acrylics, doing the polka (!!) with Papertreyink's first set -- Paper Tray -- a set of mainly words and dots. Once I figured out that these small stamps worked better with classic dye ink rather than juicier pigment ink (for me), I was intrigued. They are so very easy to put just where I want them on a page. And then, I met Rhonna Farrer's Clear Stamps by Autumn Leaves! It's official! It's love! I bought the Botanicals set with my 40% off coupon at AC Moore's the other day. I got a beautiful set of 10 good size stamps for less than $10!!! But more importantly, for the first time I was able to make a background with individual stamps and have the layout of the stamps work -- everything stamped in exactly the right spot the first time. Pigment, dye ink, didn't matter. It was love at first sight. I'm thinking of divorcing my wood stamps and going acrylic. I feel awful, like a traitor, especially since I've sold off 5 sets to help pay for my affair with acrylic. Best not to make rash decisions! There's nothing wrong with having both, is there??? How I made this card: The big flower (Rhonna Farrer) stamped with Eggplant Craft ink from SU onto shimmery white paper. Flourish (Rhonna Farrer) stamped with Old Olive Classic ink; little pink flowers are from a portion of a stamp from Stampin Up's Carte Postale colored in with SU's Pixie Pink marker. I then stamped the flower again onto Eggplant cardstock with White Memories ink. The faux pink eyelets are stamped little pink dots from Papertreyink's Paper Tray set. Other supplies used: Old Olive and Pixie Pink (SU) cardstock; SU Word Window Punch; charm from AC Moore's (says follow your dream); Narrow pink organdy ribbon from SU sponged with Pixie Pink classic ink; SU's Warm Words. By the way, I'm going to remake this card later this weekend and you'll be seeing version 2. ********* To answer a question from Jackie (Hi, Jackie!!), I don't think I've tested out white inks and posted the results. I've thought about it though! I did try out different white cardstocks and that may be what you are remembering. The next time I can make space on my stamping table, I think I will try out some different white inks and post the results.
