What is the difference between dye, pigment and hybrid ink?
Dye inks are water-based and literally dye your paper. The ink is soaked up by the paper or cardstock so they tend to dry fast. Pigment inks are made of tiny particles that will sit on top of your paper and will take a longer time to dry. They tend to be brighter, with a denser saturation of color and work well with dark colors of cardstock. They are also great for heat embossing since they stay wet longer. Hybrid inks are the best of the two ink types (dye and pigment) as they have properties of both inks. They also tend to be more translucent in their appearance. Hybrid inks are suitable for all skill levels of crafters due to their compatibility with multiple mediums and surfaces.

I love this gorgeous sparkly ink! It's not like anything I've tried before. My favorite way to use it is through a stencil using a domed blender. It works perfectly and gives you a lovely, sparkly design.

How many ways can I say it does a wonderful ink transfer???? I have used it with high quality rubber stamps, and photo polymer stamps and not so great quality clear stamps. Each stamp transferred the ink perfectly. Very pleased.
I expected this ink pad to show up more since it is pigment ink. I've had to stamp the image over and over multiple times for it to begin to show up. I'm trying to use it with a background stamp and it just isn't showing up much. Maybe I'll try some different colors of cardstock to see what color it shows up best on.
I love this new color--it is so unique and perfect for adding a pearly frost to your projects or a silver sheen on darker papers. It works great for blending through a stencil and pairs nicely with the Scrapbook.com hybrid inks or Distress Inks/Oxides.

If you want to add special, shiny touch for your projects - think ink is a perfect answer. It works great while applying through the stencil. It's quite thick and need some time to dry. When it's dry the shimmer stays in place and doesn't come off.

I thought this was going to be more like a silver paint color, but it is soft and shimmery, with just enough sparkle to stand out, without being overbearing. the application is flawless and just brings designs to a new level.
I love these inks, so pretty and delicate! I used them to ink blend white cardstock panels and they added such a beautiful shimmer to my cards! Elegant and subtle but so festive!
