It does seem like the Riot of Petals background stamp is almost screaming to be colored but I love the look of it on the Fabriano note color. I uploaded a Riot card earlier using VersaFine Vintage Sepia but wanted to see what it would look like in Onyx Black...I love the sharp contrast.

What are the dark brown and black inks that you gravitate to? I've been a huge fan of the VersaFine pads but I'm always open to finding good waterproof brown and black inks....I know that people use StazOn, which I did on my acetate card.

I would love your feedback!

  1. Wonderful job Amy - it looks like a printed note card.

  2. Brilliance Chocolate and Chestnut Roan Fluid Chalk are my two fave browns. I'm liking Memento Dew Drop in Tuxedo for my black. I like the ink, it's very good, and I like the way it sits on my desk like a little penguin.

  3. Love this...I'd be tempted to color it if it arrived in my mailbox (hee hee!). I am partial to my Staz-On since I am using gamsol all the time...

  4. That IS beautiful!! I like the Palatte Inks myself.. although once you use them on your clear stamps they are stained forever.. But you get great coverage and it's very crisp.

  5. I love it. No coloring for me. The b&w is so elegant!

  6. Oh how stunning! I love it in its uncoloured perfection! :0)

  7. It's simple and gorgeous. I use Pallete black and Ranger Pitch black and sometimes Brilliance graphite /black.
