My new monogram set

DSC01670

So as I told you some days back – I got a JustRite Special Occassions monogram set!! I’ve been trying to use it for everything now :-D

The monogram part is embossed in clear EP so it looks very classy IRL. The sketch is little simple but I wanted to try it as everybody making monogram cards was doing it :). Though after making these I felt I could’ve made it a little more decorative…never mind there’s always a next time!

I must also take this opportunity to narrate my horror story with Anna Griffin’s black pigment ink. I used it stamp the monogram and it really nice jet black, gives a beautiful rich impression but the only problem – it never dries (at least for me!). It’s been days since I did this and I still have a sample of this which smears when I touch with my fingers. So the solution was to emboss them with the clear EP. It looks beautiful after that!

  • Stamps: JustRite Special Occassions set
  • CS and PP: DCWV, Bazzill, Paper Company
  • Ribbon, Anna Griffin black pigment ink, clear EP, nestabilities.
