A Fish Story

Sunday afternoon, dad takes the two boys fishing, leaving me with only one kid in the house (I don't know the last time that happened!)! So, after baby Lily went to bed, I actually got a bit of time to stamp!

This was a super fast card ... owing mostly to the fact that I got some of the new Momento ink! I tell ya ... this stuff is pretty darn awesome!! You really don't have to heat set it at all before you color with Copics! I bought mine online at Stamper's Dream! I was very impressed with the service, price and super speedy shipping! I also picked up some new 6x6 Basic Grey pads! I haven't been using a lot of patterned paper, but they were so yummy that I just couldn't resist! I also used the new A Muse Clear Ovals - so incredibly awesome!! I have wanted these in clear for sooo long and I couldn't be more excited about it!!

Back to the Momento ink ... here's my little mini review:

*Super fast drying - no heat setting!!
*Available in a wide range of colors
*Pleasing design - they have little feet to hold the tear-drop shaped pad upright.

*I did have a small amount of bleeding toward the outside of the image
(almost like the Copic pushed the Momento ink out)
*The Tuxedo black is not a SUPER black black - not as black as my old friend Versafine!

I would still really recommend these inks - especially for stamping on the go when it is not convenient to heat set!

Details: Stamps, ribbon by A Muse, CS by SU, Copic markers, Momento and Staz-on inks.
