More Make it Monday

I had so much fun last night getting inky with my card for this week's make it monday challenge that i decided to stay up (way past my bedtime) and try some multicolored reinker stamping with the beautiful blessings stamp set and i ended up making two more cards:)

I used Papertrey Ink's Simply Chartreuse and Tsukineko's Pinecone reinkers for the sentiments, i really wanted to highlight the bold words with the green ink to make them stand out more :)

so here are my cards:

the joyful in hope poppies card:

and the ordinary day lillies card (i don't actually know what kind of flowers those are supposed to be, but they kind of look like water lillies to me so that's what i'm calling them :)

oh, and on a side note, this card was a test drive for my new white pigment ink i ordered last week, if you haven't tried Fresh Ink's white pigment ink, go get some immediately, it stamped like a dream, great coverage with just one gentle pounce on the pad, it had perfect coverage but it didn't gunk up my stamp and block with excess ink, so i could actually see where i wanted to stamp, it showed up really well on darker cardstock, and it wasn't too bad of a pain to clean off of my stamp. big fan. i've tried american crafts, papertrey ink, versa color, and versa magic white pigment inks before but fresh ink just soared to the top of my favorites :)
