|I trimmed this card down after stamping my banner a bit too high on|
the standard card. It looks much better. Trust me.
The crisp, dense black is gorgeous. Click on the pic to see it bigger. The pennants are stamped in Memento Luxe pear tart and rose bud. This ink is creamy and thick and wonderful.
It has only one drawback: it dries slowly.
THUD. I've already ruined three otherwise perfect cards by smearing the black ink before it dried. After years of primarily using quick-drying Memento (no-Luxe) black ink, getting used to drying time is hard, hard, hard.
Impatience may or may not be my problem. So I'm teaching myself to set cards aside for drying rather than handling them immediately. I'm a slow learner.
What about you? Does your ink have you well-trained, or do you stick with quick-drying inks?
