Clear Stamps For Paper Scrapbooking...which Pens? Want to Be Able to Color Detail in Varied Colors
Posted 05 July 2011 - 03:12 PM
I'm still trying to develop a knowledge of which inks to use in various scenarios. I need to re-visit some of the books/magazines for guidance, but if anyone knows of a good summary/tutorial on ink choices, specifically including pens, I would appreciate being pointed in that direction. I love the digital scrapbooking because of the ability to re-use supplies, minimal space requirements, etc., but have accumulated quite a few paper supplies over the years and would like to work with them as well.

I like to use the Copic Ciao Pens - I'm sure not an authority on this subject but they work well for me - I got mine at Joann's -if you don't have a store near you maybe you could online at Joann's website.........

Sorry I took so long to get back to you, Victoria - it sounds as if April has had some luck with the water-based pens. My Copic pens are alcohol-based and I only have a very few stamps but have never had any problem using them for the clear ones. They aren't cheap but mine have lasted a very long time.
HTH a little bit.

That's very true - my set is a small one so I don't have lots and lots of colors - I just happened to get a really good buy on them when I bought them. I can't say that I've gotten my money's worth out of them but I do like the way the colors look when I use them - and I think that's part of their selling point - the HUGE array of colors if one can afford to buy them all!
