In Search of a Magnificently Marvelous Mint!

Mint.  It's all the rage in fashion right now, so naturally, it is all the rage in crafting, as well.  I have fallen 100% for this particular trend... yes.. I even own mint pants, much to The Hubbums' chagrin.  HA!  BUT...I was finding it VERY difficult to get a really good mint ink color for my stamping!  Well... that's when Tsukineko stepped in!  John sent me a bunch of fabulous ink colors and in those included several I could test out in search of a Magnificently Marvelous Mint!  Here are the results!

The Great Mint Ink Search


Each of these is a Tsukineko ink.  And I love ever.single.one of them.  HA!  However, many, as you can plainly see, are not in any way, shape, or form 'minty' in nature.  I did come to a decision after conducting this test, however.  The Aquatic Splash is a remarkable good pale mint tone and the ....wait for it... VersaColor MINT is a lovely deeper mint tone.  (Who knew?!  LOL!)  Mind you, when I began this search I hadn't yet discovered the one actually called mint.  Just putting that out there.  HA!

So...if you are in search of the perfect mint I recommend checking out these fabulous ink colors.  If you are looking for some other lovely green and blue shades...the rest of them are fabulous, too!  YAY!

And..because I hate to post with out a card...here is a fun one I created using VersaMagic inks in a variety of colors along with the super cute sequin stamp from Fresh Squeezed Stamps On Trend set and a cute sentiment from Paper Smooches.
