Here are two of my favs when it comes to inking/chalking. I'm not a huge stamper, but I do like to ink the edges of my pages.. I may even have "over-ink-edging-itis" LOL. Anyway. I was having such a problem with the larger sized inkpads, fumbling and stuff & Laurie told me to get on board with these STAMPIN' UP Ink spots, these are the bold brites. Love em, and sooooo easy to handle and they pack quite the color punch.. long lasting.. great great to have in your crop bag..they fit nicely in a craft carrier. You can have so many colors with you and not take up much space. The other is Powder Puff chalking inks by Quick Quotes, Marachino cherry and Tahiti. Me and Laurie went to the CK convention and got these in a class. We both thought that the colors weren't really fantab, but lemme tell ya.. they work for everything. If you want to try these and only have a few bucks in ur budge, get these colors...I PROMISE u'll luv em. We both use them all the time and are amazed time after time how well these colors go with everything. We chalk with passion.. I think we have " Too-much-chalk-itis" LOL. I am definately going to ask Santa for more of the chalking inks and another set of the spots. Anybody else have a fav. ink?
