Wanna Sketch no. 12 Reminder

I’m baaaaaaack… with another sample for the current Wanna Sketch.  I was playing around with some inks lately and thought the randomness of the dots in the sketch would be perfect.  So let’s take a look at at the sketch again.

I’ve been dying to try out the Memento Luxe inks.  I had the opportunity to play with a friend’s supply and what better way than with a bunch of falling hearts?  I kept randomly stamping hearts in the different colors to see what I liked or disliked.  In the end, I do like Memento Luxe MUCH better than plain Memento.  The Luxe inks are pigment inks and are vibrant and stamp fabulously.  The plain Memento are dye inks, and while I do like them for certain applications, the coverage isn’t ask consistent and often looks mottled.  If I had to choose, I’d pick the luxe over the regular memento.  The only drawback… long drying time and because they are so juicy, they can be a bit slippery with clear stamps.

So back to the card, what do you link of the falling hearts?  Aren’t they cute?  Gotta love Paper Smooches stamps.  I also just adore the new stitched tag die.  A total fave for sure.

Are you ready to take this sketch on???  The linky will stay open until Friday, January 14, 2014 {11:55pm PT}.
Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

    So sweet! You used all of my faves – PS, hearts and Momento Luxe ink! I’m with you on that – love the luxe, not so much on the regular (unless it’s black) – for the same reasons.

    Loving those Luxes and i do like the plain Mementos too, I seem to struggle more with the HA for ‘splotchiness’ but I’m persevering lol. Another great card Lisa!

Your comments really make my day, thank you!
