Using Older Sets and the Perfect Orange Ink
Don't know about you, but when I'm anxious I tend to spend money on stamps (and eat, but that's another story). Given all the health stuff going on, I've had a steady stream of packages coming (until the husband suggested I start trying to win contests instead of buying. HA!).
So, I decided it is time to put down the credit card and pick up some older sets and actually use them. These stamps are from a Hero Arts My Monthly Hero Kit from last summer. It is no longer available, but that's no reason not to use it. The sentiment is from Altenew's Halftone Circles. [By the way, I usually link to Ellen Hutson's shop because that is where I shop. However, of course all of these stamps are usually available at a variety of places.] Used Altenew inks -- Warm Sunshine, Buttercream, Mountain Mist, Lagoon, Emerald, Sun Kissed and Orange Cream.
Altenew's Orange Cream is the perfect true orange. I've looked all over and even had friends send me orange ink pads, but they all had a brown undertone or something that didn't ring true. I'm happy with Orange Cream. It's crazy how happy this made me.
Stamped on linen cardstock because I thought the texture showing through the ink would be fun. Added White Blizzard Nuvo Crystal Drops.
