Product focus: Hero Arts Shadow Ink

note: this is the first in a new series where I will be creating holiday inspired projects with Hero Arts Stamps. Watch for more over the next few months!

I hear good things about Hero Arts ink pads and I was curious – what was the shadow ink like?
The answer is: rock solid. It is a beautiful ink to stamp with – one that does not blend, fade, or react with water or mist (unlike distress inks) but that is softer than an archival or staz-on type ink. It has a softness to it, and combined with absolutely beautiful colors I know I’ll be getting + using these pads a lot in the future!

What can you do with them? Stamp with them! I also loved the look when I simply rubbed my ink pad onto a paper – such beautiful coverage. For today though, I made a card featuring two colors, and after stamping my background I used distress ink, mist, and water blended and you can see it did not react. That green ink pad is such a great color!

The heart is also stamped with a new shadow ink color – that’s my very berry favorite. LOVE that rich pink hue. Here’s my finished card:

One holiday card down, many more to go!

Supplies used:

If you’re looking for a really nice ink ad to use on your stamping projects, in lovely colors that won’t react or smudge when you go to do other stuff – I’d strongly recommend the shadow ink pads!
