Trusty All-Purpose Inks

When you love your inks as much as I do, then running out of a specific colour is an absolute train smash. It’s a little like a 2-year-old throwing a tantrum in the middle of a store and they don’t realise that it’s really not that bad. In my case it was when I ran out of Walnut ink crystals – my go to for anything and everything.

But luckily the tantrum only lasted a few seconds and I made a plan.

Because I know how inks will react, I could recreate the effects and colour of walnut ink crystals almost to a T with things I did have on hand. My trusty All-Purpose inks!

I used old papers that I needed to colour. Lightly misted them with water. Then add some Lemon Yellow and Truffle All-Purpose inks with a pipette and misted with more water. I did this all over a plastic tray and let the ink drip off the paper.

Eventually, I just started dipping the papers into the ink collected in the tray, lifted them up and then placed them on my craft sheet to dry.

The mixed yellow and brown ink created the perfect light brown ink that mimicked my favourite walnut ink crystal brown.

The initial inked papers in yellow and brown also created an amazing look that has quickly become a stunning favourite effect of mine.

Now to head off and use these beautifully coloured pages on my next project.

There is always a plan to made when you have inks – so tantrums are totally unnecessary. But creativity is always the answer.
