I don't think I'm done with this sketch yet. I'm eyeing another set in my new stash that I think would work well...maybe later!
I have been very busy getting organized. I love the act of organizing - it leads to a fresh start and I love that feeling. This time I decided to put together a chart of inks. I've downloaded or created charts for Memento and the Distress Inks and Papertrey and Stampin' Up. But I had a really bad moment. I have 113 different Stampin' Up ink colors. My collection goes back to colors I'm betting none of you remember - Mint Melody, Mauve Mist - those are going way back. But look at this...how did I let this happen?
I didn't even know that I didn't have it - so clearly I've never used it. But...that didn't stop me from jumping on EBay and completing my collection. Sad, huh??
And I have a question. Does anybody "understand" Hero Arts inks? I was looking for a chart of all of their inks and there are a ton of downloadable charts available. But none of them include all of the inks. On the Hero Arts site, there is this chart and then there is this chart but there are tons of colors besides what is on those charts. I love Pale Tomato but it doesn't show up anywhere. Did they have a big color overhaul? I'm doubting they retired all of those missing colors because if they did, they didn't leave themselves with many. Anybody follow Hero Arts?

Sorry I can't help with your question about Hero Arts but I just had to tell you that I do remember Mint Melody and Mauve Mist. I also have a huge collection of SU inks and one day I finally broke down and gave some of the older ones to my daughters. Wouldn't you know that SU then brought back some of the old In Colors. I should have hoarded a bit longer :-)ReplyDelete
This is beyond adorable, Kim!! Just LOVE it!! Great take on the sketch. Yes, mint medley and mauve mist I have them :) Can't help with the HA inks, sorry. If you get stuck maybe you can e-mail them directly, as the omission on the chart may be an oversight on their part?? Good luck!ReplyDelete
I absolutely love this card Kim! Greetings from Belgium, AnneliesReplyDelete
Hi Kim, love your card, I have just recently started collecting inks and have so far collected all the Dew Drop inks, do you know if there are any downloadable charts for these, thanks, Sarah xReplyDelete
I just LOVE how you used the twine for this sketch. And the bat holding the heart is the perfect touch! For your HA question, oh man, I have been wondering the same thing! But I did catch an ink comparison video Jennifer McGuire did a few weeks ago that might help you out - she has an enormous chart that could be just what you're looking for. I will find the post for you and leave another comment with the link :)ReplyDelete
Darling card! I wish I could help you out on your question, but I have not idea. I love the peek of your color chart, though. I'm feeling the itch to reorganize again, too.ReplyDelete
I am in love with the batty in love :) what an idea and what a terrific representation :) you are ever amazing.ReplyDelete
I agree organizing always gives a new start
Now how cute is this?!ReplyDelete
Sorry, no help on the ink chart...I've become an Impress Fresh Ink girl and although I should have a color chart, I don't :)
OMG...too darn cute!!ReplyDelete
That's a super cute card! Love the image of batty!ReplyDelete
I have a large collection of inks - SU, Memento, Distress, Cats Eyes, Stazon - and I use them all at least once :)
Love this Kim! Such a cute idea with the bat!ReplyDelete
Love your adorable batty card, Kims! You are the Queen of Clever!! I'm with you on the organizing addiction. I swear I have more fun doing that than making cards! I'm so nuts.ReplyDelete
BTW, I know why you didn't end up with a Dusty Durango. I have it. I loved it so much I ordered two. I'm so piggy.
Love the card! Reminds me of the enormous fruit bats we used to see hanging off the telephone wires when we lived in Oz.ReplyDelete
Love this, the twine use, divine! The coloring perfection!!!ReplyDelete
I am totally in LOVE with this card!!! Such a GREAT take on the sketch!!!ReplyDelete

Oh yes, who doesn't love a bat hanging upside down wrapped in twine.ReplyDelete

Fabulous card, Kim; that little bat is sooooo darling! As for organizing: that's one of my 'things'! As I've mentioned before: yes, I do alphabetize my paper pads, and stamps (within companies). Yep, I'm batty...ReplyDelete
