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.
What are color families?
The Scrapbook.com Hybrid Inks are designed in color families. Each color family has four individual colors numbered 1 through 4 (1 being the lightest shade in the group and 4 being the darkest shade of the group). Color families are an extremely important aspect of layered stamping because each of the four colors coordinates together to achieve a dimensional, layered look. Every Hybrid Ink Pad has the color family name and the color family number clearly labeled on the lid along with the name of the ink pad and the ink shade. NOTE: The 1 color for some color families is designed to be an incredibly light whisper of a shade for that group.

These inks are perfect to decorate over, paint with, and stamp even a fine design with, with crisp results. Hybrid Inks are the best of both worlds.
Other than that, I love the fact that these stack so well, but not so much that the only way to open them is to break the seal with a knife or a fingernail. I'd love a redesign with the second iteration of these where the case is 'waisted' at the join, allowing the fingers to angle in from the outside to the join giving some purchase to break the seal and open the ink pad easily - without fumbling and getting covered in ink.
These are great shades for water and sky. These have also made for some great flowers. Pads are inked well. Great for my stamped images, crisp and clear, and works well with my blending brushes. Fast color!
I love these inks. I can't wait to get the complete set. These are very smooth. Thank you Scrapbook.com for grouping these sets. I find blending challenging and this helps me to know what will work.
I have just started collecting the hybrid line and i will tell it is sooo easy purchasing these ink pads and reinkers. Having them in groups is awesome. This Sky group is perfect for blending.
