F is for Fiesta...

...and fun! More stamps from the A*Muse "Cinco de Mayo" release... The sombrero is so fun and the detail on the letter "f" in Fiesta is fabulous! I used some of my new Palette Hybrid inks on this (couldn't resist ordering the rest of the cubes - hee, hee). I love my Fluid Chalk ink cateyes, but it is nice to have these as well and I especially like them with my clear stamps since they don't seem to stain the stamp as quickly. As for the packaging of the Palette cubes, I like the size but the container is brown plastic so you don't get a good view of the color through the lid. I also wish the color name was printed somewhere on the cube, but that was easily fixed with my handy P-Touch labeler. Soon I'll be trying some of the VersaMagic dew drop chalk inks that I picked up at Michael's (gotta love coupons and gift cards!). One can never have too many inkpads or colors right?!

I am a big fan of the Colorbox chalk inks too! So rich and creamy. When you try the Versamagic chalks - will you post about how it compares? I'd be curious :)
