Today I have a video I put together for the sweet Simon Says Stamp folks. In it, I show Hero Arts Shadow Inks – including the original Soft Shadow Inks and the new 2012 Mid-Tone Shadow Inks. These inks are very unique and incredibly awesome… perfect for getting a smooth, solid stamped image. Here’s why:
Basically, this ink is unique because it slowly smooths out and dries into the perfect stamped image. It is the best ink for images with lots of solid space, such as the hearts I used here.
I threw together this very quick sample of colors for you to compare each. A few of my original Soft Shadow Inks are older than the hills (in packaging from three designs ago!) and therefore a bit light… but it should give you an idea. All of the colors starting with “Soft” are the original Soft Shadow Inks. All the others are the more vibrant Mid-Tone Shadow Inks.
And here is a look at just the new Mid-Tone Shadow Inks…
These inks are lovely, I tell you. And they go nicely with my other favorite ink, Distress Ink, too.
Now I know folks are going to ask me which my favorite colors of the new inks are. Ha ha ha… well… just get them all. 🙂 In fact, you can get all the new Mid-Tone inks in a bundle HERE. But Wet Cement and Cup ‘O Joe are must-have in their lovely grey and brown colors. And the others? They are all great – just depends on what colors you use the most.
And big cheers to Shari Carroll who was the mastermind behind the new colors. Nice work! And she put a video about them together HERE that shows how the inks go together with the whole Hero Hues color line.
Hope this helps explain the inks! Be sure to head over to Simon Says Stamp’s blog for more info.
