The other day, I got a very happy box from Ranger with some supplies I’ve been needing and three happy colors that I have been waiting for since they were first announced about a month ago: the new Jenni Bowlin Studio ink colors! After playing around with them, I’ve decided that these are definitely keepers. Of course, they have all of the same aspects that I love about the other Jenni Bowlin inks: super awesome coverage, lots of pigment and easy to work with colors. I’m loving them! As promised, I made a video showing you the new colors paired along side some other inks and papers for comparison.
I also did this with the budget-conscious in mind. I know that not everyone can justify buying new inks when you already have this color in a different formula. So this is for you to decide if these new colors would be a good addition to your stash. But I can’t promise I won’t enable you about them; you know I love my JBS inks a little too much to just shut up about them. ;) Here’s a card I made with the new colors for starters:
I talk about the card a little more in the video, but everything’s pretty straightforward stamping on some cream cardstock. (The comparison video is done on Stamper’s Select White from PTI, by the way.)
And right after I made this video, I saw that Simon Says Stamp just got the brand new colors in. Woohoo! Click on the links below to go over and buy them. You know you need the new colors. ;) They’re awesome!
Here are the comparison charts for your viewing pleasure. Sorry about my super messy handwriting. We’ll just say that my writing has “character.” (And yes, it pretty much always looks like that. Haha.) Lavender Sachet:
Also, if you can think of some lighter grey cardstock that you really like and think would match Weather Vane, let me know. I’ve been on the lookout for some good 50% grey for a while! (Maybe Basic Gray from SU!? That may be too dark.)
Hope this helps you plan out your next shopping trip. You know I can’t recommend these inks highly enough. Their quality is top notch, and they’re perfect for stamping solid and clean images. In other words, you need them. Haha! I’m going to go back to my desk and stamp some more now. ;) See you tomorrow for another crafty post. Hint: I actually scrapbooked the other day. I know, shocking!
