I have white-pigment-ink-phobia.  There is no cure for me.

People have told me a million times that white pigment ink is a "must-have", a "go-to" for various techniques and they made beautiful artwork with it.  I tried those techniques and I tried to cure my phobia but I'm afraid I have yet overcome my fear for it.

Between finishing up the inking and completion of this card, I have probably washed my hands for 10 times.  No kidding, 10 times.  It is actually my nth attempt to get the stamping straight but after the success, I worried so much that my inky fingers would mess up the pattern so I kept on washing my hands. I'm not sure what I've done wrong with white pigment inks, but even after multiple heat setting sessions, I think the ink was still not completely dry. If you have tips about pigment ink, please share!

See the front of the card is warped as a result of heat?  I hope it will flatten out later.

Even though I have yet overcome my White-pigment-ink-phobia, I am a step closer to overcoming it.  This card does turn out quite lovely.  For me it is quite a challenge to make a Thank You card for a man but I think the recipient will like it (and the chocolate bar next to it).

This card is entering the challenges below:

  1. Not a lot if 'white space' but wow what a fab CAS card. That stamping is awesome!

  2. I think you did a great job with the white pigment ink. I always use my heat gun to set the ink. Also, if the card warps, try putting the heat to the back side of the image and it should straighten out a bit.

  3. Oooh, pretty! Love the pattern in the white ink! My hands were washed quite often making my card too! Thanks for playing with Just Us Girls!
