My 5 Ink Must Haves

We all have our faves, right?  Your favorite inks depend on your creative style and how you make.  I have lots of inks in my studio, but I only have five that I use nearly every time I create.  Let's talk about why these are my faves and what I use them for. 


Gina K. Designs Amalgam Ink - This is my go-to for stamping images I'm going to be coloring.  This ink is ideal for all the coloring mediums I use including Copics, colored pencils, and watercolor.  I love the new obsidian black because it's such a true sharp black.

VersaMark Watermark Ink - I grab this ink anytime I'm going to do some embossing.  I've tried other embossing inks and always go back to Versamark.  The results are clean and crisp, even with fine detail stamps.

VersaFine Black Onyx - I have one word - sentiments.  I stamp literally every sentiment with this ink.  In my opinion, there is no better ink for a sharp, crisp sentiment.  VersaFine is also great if you want crisp black embossing lines, just stamp and emboss with clear powder.  

Ranger Distress Oxide - These blend like butter.  Literally the best blending inks in my opinion.  These also have amazing water-reactive properties for fun watercolor and distress techniques. 

Ranger Distress Ink - My first Distress Ink love, and still my fave.  I use these for all kinds of great background techniques and I love using them for watercoloring images.
