  1. Thank you for sharing. I really love my Hero arts shadow inks and Tim Holtz distress ink. A big shopping list after reading this post.

  2. My favorite ink by far is the Memento Tuxedo Black and the Versafine Onyx for black inks and for colored inks I like the Memento Luxe and the Avery Elle! I only have a few but love them!! I’ve been wanting to try SSS and MFT’s bc I’ve heard great things about them!!! There are so many brands and I absolutely love inks! That and stamps are my weakness!

  3. I am already left a comment once above. Commenting again to let you know that all your videos have been very helpful for me since I work on limited budget. My favorite videos were ones on inks,stamps and stencils Thanks for the videos and would love to win a Giveaway 🙂

  4. I am very curious about the MFT hybrid inks. I will be trying them when their stock supplies and my budget coincide. Right now, I use Versafine, Papertrey, and Hero Arts inks. Thanks for a great series. Loved the videos … Now to catch up on my commenting!

  5. I don’t think I can pick a favorite! I love Tim Holtz Distress Inks, but it really depends on the project. I turn to my Onyx Black VersaFine for a good, clean, black stamped image.

  6. my go to ink still seems to be Memento, but I love Gina K’s white and black too…I’ve been picking up the mini distress inks so fun and cute and can’t wait to play with them more!

  7. All inks have a special purpose and I use several different types. My favorite inks are Distress Inks. I don’t use them as much for stamping as I do for adding shading to my cards. I hardly ever make a card that I don’t put Distress Ink on it somewhere!!!

  8. I’ve been wanting to purchase Hero Arts Dye Inks and SSS ink pads. I have the Distress Inks, Studio Calico and CTMH inks. All serve their purpose, but I find that I always want more LOL 🙂

  9. So far the distress inks are my favorite because you can use them for so many techniques and, to be honest, I haven’t had much opportunity to work with many of the other inks.

  10. Thank you so much for all the good tips and tricks. It is so near getting to see all the things you use for all different things. I personally really liked your organizing video the best. But all of them are my favorite videos of he whole year. Thanks for everything.

  11. My FAVORITE Black Ink is Versa Fine Black Onyx!! I JUST LOVE it!! I LOVE Distress Inks for Techniques and Hero Arts Shadow Inks and MFT Hybrid Inks!! These are my MOST USED Inks!! =) THANKS SO MUCH for sharing and have a Fabulous Weekend!! =)

  12. I have all the Archival inks and all the Distress, all the Mama Elephant too. But my very favorite is Archival Jet Black, use it with watercolors and I loooove it.

  13. Without a doubt it’s distress inks. I’m absolutely in love with the ones I have and now want to get all of the minis and markers & paints too – but sadly I need to save money for those! Hopefully one day I’ll have the whole collection of mini inks, markers and paints! For now I’ll make do with the small collection of inks I do have!

  14. Love the differences I learned about different inks from your video…being new to card making, this is a must video see!

  15. I really have so many favorite inks. I finally got the mini distress inks and I love them! I bought the MFT Hybrid black ink when I was doing the copic class and that has quickly become my most used ink. I also really love the hero arts shadow inks, I have a couple in my collection and I can see why everyone loves them so much. Thanks for the chance to win!

  16. My favorite inks are verafine onyx black and brown and the Tim Holtz distress inks. I love all of the different techniques you can do with the inks. Thanks for sharing.

  17. Last night I was in the middle of watching a My Favorite Things INK video when I paused it to take care of dinner. When I came back it wouldn’t start again so I thought I’d just watch it in the morning. In the morning it’s gone. I can’t find it anywhere at all. Not YouTube, not on your blog on website. I’m stumped. Did I imagine that I saw part of an ink video? Am I loosing my mind?
