I use stazon Jo, because most of my colouring work is watercoloured. I know a few recommend Memories inkpads, although I haven't tried them. Alot of people colour with prisma pencils and sansador but i think the pencils are expensive. Hope this helps Jo.

Hi Jo, I use Ink it up and stazon. the smell of stazon makes me sneeze after a while so I vary it. I cannot say that I notice too much difference, ususally I have more trouble with some stamps getting a good impression. I now use a stamp mat, it helps a lot. I will get your housemouse images off to you this week now life is a little less hectic. They are all done so I will post them tomorrow - hugs chrissyX

Hi Jo, I have to agree, Black Staz-On or Balck VersaFine are the best inkpads around. The VersaFine is great if your stamps are very detailed too. :-) xxx

Hiya Jo,

I've been away for the weekend to the Lake District :-) Hope you've had a good weekend.

Regarding inks, I also prefer Stazon and it is excellent for colouring and doesn't run.

Jo said...

I agree with Vanessa....Stazon is good and doesn't smudge when you colour in as long as you leave it to dry or blast it with a heat gun. I also use Versafine.

Lesley said...

I use Black Versafine most of the time and sometimes my Black Stazon if my card is a bit shinier as the Versafine won't dry so well unless I emboss it! xxx

Hi Jo {{hugs}}. Stazon is no good if you want to use Sansodor as it's solvent based. We have a thread running on our forum about this very subject! I use grey Versafine as well as black India ink for Sansodor and Stazon for water-colouring. An large jiffy envelope is on it's way to you today with a surprise babes. Lol Lynn x
