See How to Use Instant Drying Pigment Ink for Wedding Invitations

See How to Use Instant Drying Pigment Ink for Wedding Invitations

Happy spring, everyone! This month we are focusing on wedding themes and I thought I would share some ideas using large floral stamps. When you are mass producing cards or invitations, you want to minimize the number of steps when creating. So using large images will save you a lot of time. Creating with a mess-free ink, like StazOn Pigment, is also key because it dries instantly and won’t smear. Lastly, for quick embellishing, use the Sheer Shimmer Stix to add the final wow factor. And your simple wedding project is done!
