Time to share my first project of the month for Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko! I've use a fabulous new product on this project...IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento LUXE™ pigment ink. Memento LUXE™ colors coordinate with the Memento™ line of dye inks, but they are a pigment ink. This is a new pigment ink formulation, with richer pigments. The result is a juicier ink that has a little bit faster drying time...and it can be embossed. What makes this pigment ink different is that you can use it on wood and other porous surfaces and it is permanent on fabric when heat set!
I started by gathering some supplies:
- IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento LUXE™ pigment ink (full size pad in Bahama Blue - also pictured is the Pistachio ink pad, which did not get used in the end!)
- IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® VersaFine™ pigment ink (full size pad in Majestic Blue)
- Echo Park's All About a Boy patterned paper
- Canvas Tag
- Cowboy stamp set (designed by the talented team at Lizzie Anne Designs)
- Hemptique twine in white and natural
- heat tool
- Wood Grain embossing folder
I inked up the cowboy boots to stamp them on the canvas tag. See how juicy the Memento LUXE™ pigment ink is? You can still the boot impression in the pad, a couple of minutes after I inked it!
I used my heat tool to set the ink on the canvas, which makes it permanent. This tag probably won't get washed and doesn't need to be permanent, but you never know!
I stamped my sentiment on to patterned paper using VersaFine™ pigment ink (full size pad in Majestic Blue). I love the crisp, even coverage you get with these inks.
I finished my card, adding an embossed panel. I also punched a hole in the tag I created and thread twine through, as well as embellished the sentiment strip with a button.
