Make it Monday #152: Layering Pigment Ink with Dye Inks

This week's Make it Monday was all about stamping with pigment ink first, then with dye ink. I used Fancy Flourishes and Fresh Snow pigment ink, waited for it to dry, then used Cutting Garden in a variety of darkish inks over top. I like the technique, although I think my stamping needs more practice... I spritzed each stamp with water, before I stamped it, trying for a softer, watercolour look.
All materials are PTI.


And here is a close up, showing the white, pigment ink underneath.

Inks used: Fresh Snow, Scarlet Jewel, Pure Poppy, Berry Sorbet, Summer Sunrise, Avocado
Versafine Black Onyx for the sentiment
