Squid Ink Hybrid InkPad for stamping, scrapbooking, journaling, mixed media - by Jane Davenport and Spellbinders.
This set includes all 12 colours :)
This practical all-purpose craft ink is available in 12 fabulous colours including 2 metallics (gold and silver). Squid Inks are ideal for stamping in all your cardmaking and mixed media projects. So versatile, Squid Ink works with both water-soluble mediums like watercolour paints and ink sprays as well as solvent based mediums like alcohol markers (eg, Copics, Chameleon Pens).
Stamp on almost any surface including washi tape, serviettes, tissue, cardstock, fabric and glass (heat set on non-porous surface).
Use a blending foam to apply this ink through a face stencil or pat onto clear or rubber stamps to print. Then use your other skin coloured pencils, inks and paints to finish your masterpiece. Using a pink or brown toned ink to create the outlines means they'll become part of the picture, rather than have them look out of place.
Squid Inks are housed in a unique mermaid scale shaped case with a raised ink pad on a felt base. The housing is beautiful in shape and ergonomic to hold and use. Each inkpad has its colour and name on the edge, so when stored in a stack, you can easily see which one is which. The lid fits snugly to the base and has a small indent on the outer curve to help open the case.
This pack includes 10 full inkpads, 2 empty inkpads (for the metallic inks) and 2 metallic ink refills.

Gold Bullion and Silver Trinket Important Info ...
This has a special metallic formulation that requires the ink to be added to the blank ink pad before use.
- Shake refill bottle vigorously to ensure all pigments and inks are mixed for an even coverage.
- Apply a small amount of ink to empty ink pad. You'll know when you've used enough because it will sit on top of the felt/foam pad or leak out the sides into the tray (no drama, it doesn't leak out of the container).
- Once the initial ink you've applied soaks in (only takes a second), rub gently into pad in a circular motion to encourage the ink to cover the felt / foam pad evenly.
- As you use the ink pad, it will even out as well.
Store pad upside down for best results (the ink may settle, as its a heavy metallic base).
- Refill as required.
