  1. If I could only have one set of inks, I would choose Distress inks but I would need to add a black permanent ink like Memento also.

  2. Distress all the way are my favorites. With archival for things that need to be permanent! Have branched out a little, but always come back to these. Thanks for all the helpful information and the giveaways! Makes it fun. 🙂

  3. At the moment I only have a complete set of Versa Color pigment ink, plus a few others. My favourite black ink, particularly for sentiments is Versafine Onyx Black for a really crisp impression. I’m hoping to gradually purchase some dye inks next year so I can try some blending techniques.

  4. So tough…to choose only one, distress pads/ markers/ refill bottle/distress stain…,
    shadow ink H-A, unicorn for white,…

  5. My favorite ink might be distress inks but I use a lot of colorbox and there was even a martha stewart ink pad in a really great fun color that I still like.

  6. I love Distress Inks – they are so versatile (blending, using as water color, spraying with water color and dragging through, distressing, etc.). My favorite black inks are StazOn (for nonporous surfaces), Memento (for Copics), and Versafine. Virsafine is waterproof so I use it for watercoloring, but it also makes the best, darkest, clearest impression with all my stamps.

  7. That is a hard one to pick – but I can pick two! I love VersaFine black ink for all my stamping, but I love the Tim Holtz Distress Inks for all the fun techniques! Thanks again for a chance to win awesome prizes! And I also think it’s fantastic that SSS and EH are providing a discount code for all your recommendations! I can’t wait to place an order!

  8. I have just started playing with colors. I have all of the CTMH inks and most of the markers but I have slowly been moving into touch markers cheaper than copic but work beautifully.

  9. I am not sure what my favorite is, but if I had to pick one I would say the Distress Inks. Thanks for the giveaway! msmissy02 at gmail dot com

  10. i got quite a lot of distress ink and love it. Now i guess the distress markers are next thing I’d like to try.

  11. These are great videos again, Jennifer! Thanks for sharing. My favorite inks are Distress Inks…I don’t think I could live without them! 🙂

  12. The Distress inks, Hero Arts shadow inks are my favourites for using color. Then Ranger Archival for black, and Hero Arts Unicorn for white!

  13. The versa mark fine black ink has been my go to ink for a long while now and my second is the Ranger Archival black ink as well.

  14. I love my distress inks for distressing. I love my hero arts inks for stamping images. And I love my versamark ink for embossing. Can’t pick just one ink….as my overflowing craft room would tell you.

  15. My favourite ink would be Hero Arts Red Royal Shadow Inks, I being looking for a christmas red color for so long… 🙂

  16. I use my distress inks all the time and love them! Wish the other variety of inks were available where we stay!

  17. I love my Distress stains, my colorbox chalk inks, brilliance inks, and versafine inks, wooosh!, didn’t think I was going to be able to stop listing inks. Thanks for sharing.

    Katie B.

  18. I love distress inks But I need to experiment more with different ways to use them. I also bought several of the small cubes sets of HA shadow inks and love them, too.

  19. SO I have watched all the videos and this is my favorite, kinda hard to stamp without ink! I struggle with Black ink and white and bought both the hero art and unicorn white. Thanks so much! I am sure I will love it!

  20. Pigment inks are my favorite at the moment. It shows its sharp and vibrant tones. P.S. loving your Crafty videos. Thanks.

  21. I use Versafine Onyx Black for my basic black. Thanks to you, Jennifer, I’m hooked on distress ink and all the techniques you can use them to create.

  22. I agree the new silver hero arts shadow ink it awesome!! I got it in a little cube set and wish I had a full size pad.

  23. I have the Memento tear drop shaped inks. I like the coverage and the vibrant colors. Your videos are so helpful for a newbie like me!

  24. Hi Jen! My favorite ink has got to be Versamark 🙂 I absolutely love it!
    I’ve tried several different types of pigment inks but haven’t been satisfied with any of them yet; I would LOVE to try the Mama Elephant line! Thank you for the chance to win!!

  25. My favorite ink has been distress, just amazes me to play with it. I’ve started working with Wendy Vecchi’s ink and I’m really liking them.

  26. I would love to try the distress inks, but my favorite is versamark ink because I love to use it with embossing powder.

  27. I’ve only really just started using Inks I love my Stampin Up black ink pad but I also love my Versamark pad it’s so versatile

  28. I really like the Hero Arts inks. Also, the Distress Inks. and I like the chalk inks and…..:) Thanks for another great video!

  29. My favorite ink is one that I don’t think I see listed here: Versafine. I adore that ink and how opaque and detailed it is! I have always been so curious to try the Hero Arts shadow inks too. You have always raved about them and it’s made me really want to try them and see what they are like!
