The deadline to enter is Sunday, August 25th. The winner will be announced on the Paper Smooches blog on Monday, August 26th
Anyone who knows me, knows that I'm super picky when it comes to ink! I like good coverage...not spotty or faded. When I first got my hands on these new Tsukineko Luxe inks I was in heaven! They are pigment based (which means they be used on a variety of surfaces...not just paper), super juicy, and stamp beautifully!
I was so impressed with the coverage and couldn't wait to try them out on fabric! I had purchased a set of three long sleeve onesies for our upcoming arrival (our newest son is due in just over a month) and I relaly wanted to personalize them!
Because I've used many fabric inks in the past that have not held up well in the wash...I was eager to see how this new ink held up after being washed and dried. So, here are photos of the onesies after the wash (which look just like they did right after I stamped them!!)...
I have always loved the bold anchor in Kim's Wicked Nauticool set (and anything nautical is so trendy right now :-) and I thought it would look great on a onesie! On the first onesie, I stamped the anchor using the Gray Flannel Memento Luxe ink.
On the next onesie, I used stamps from the Grafitti alphabet set to stamp his name (with the Teal Zeal Memento Luxe ink pad). I then stamped the little star (from the Wicked Nauticool set) all around his name using the Gray Flannel Memento Luxe ink.
