How To Use All-Purpose Inks On Canvas With Ink Potion Number 9


By Katy Ingram –

Hello Friends! Katy here with something a bit different today. I am using some All-Purpose Inks and Ink Potion Number 9 to do some painting on canvas. I did some research and could’t find anything that shows All-Purpose Inks being used on canvas so I thought I would share my experience today.

I used the All-Purpose Inks to create a Coastal painting and used some sea shells, sharks teeth and a small pelican feather that my husband and I have found on our many beach walks over the years. 

Check out the video below to see how this came together and get some tips and tricks for painting on canvas with the All-Purpose Inks and Potion Number 9.

Learn How to Make a Hearts Canvas Tote Bag Using the Bokeh Technique

By Roni Johnson

In today’s tutorial, I show you how to make a hearts canvas tote bag using the Bokeh Technique using Memento Luxe Inks and Fabrico Markers. Today’s example is Valentine’s tote made using the Imagine Crafts Happy Valentine’s Day Free PDF Download. You can use this same basic technique for any holiday or occasion by changing the mask used.

Skill: Beginner

Time: 1 hour 30 minutes


Step 1

Iron the tote bag to remove all wrinkles.

Step 2

Insert a piece of cardboard into the tote bag to prevent ink from soaking through to the back of the bag.

Step 3

Print the desired heart from the PDF onto a piece of cardstock.

Step 4

Trim the heart mask(s) and adhere to the tote bag using repositionable adhesive.

Step 5

Gather the desired colors of Memento Luxe Inks.


New or freshly-inked pads work best for this technique.

Step 6

Gather desired stamps and/or tools to stamp the circles.
Pencil erasers, circle stamps, and Sponge Daubers work great for this technique.

Step 7

Pounce the desired tool onto the ink pad; press and hold for 10-15 seconds to allow time for the canvas to soak up the ink.


Concentrate the dots of ink closer in the center and further apart as you work your way towards the edges.

Step 8

Continue to add layers of dots with the desired color(s) of ink.

Tip: Highlight Wedding Dress (White) Memento Luxe ink on the canvas with Fabrico Marker (Bubble Gum).
This makes the white pop against the canvas and other colors of ink.

Step 9

Remove the masks and discard.

Step 10

Outline the hearts using Real Black Fabrico Marker. Add additional details with Fabrico Markers at this time if desired.

Step 11

Iron the canvas with the hottest setting allowable for the fabric to set the inks.

Learn How to Emboss Drawings with All-Purpose Ink

by Kyriakos Pachadiroglou

Learn How to Emboss Drawings with All-Purpose Ink

We were challenged with the color Fern Green this month so I decided to create a mixed media canvas with a green eye focal point. Using Memento Luxe ink pads, All-Purpose Ink and Fabrico markers, I added color to a canvas. To practice a new technique, I covered my wet All-Purpose Ink with Mboss Embossing Powder to enhance parts of the drawing. I also used Creative Medium to add texture to the canvas. Using Fabrico markers can help achieve details on your drawings easily and more accurate than a brush.

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 2 hours

Step 1

Draw an eye on the canvas with the All-Purpose Ink in Real Black color.

Step 2

Cover with Mboss Clear embossing powder and heat set. All-Purpose Ink is a dense ink that will stay tacky enough on a canvas for embossing, which is a great alternative to get the awesome shine and texture from embossing powder with the densely pigmented ink and no stamping.

Step 3

Use the flower stencil and sponge daubers with the VersaColor Orchid and Memento Angel Pink ink pads to decorate under and top of the eye on the canvas.

Step 4

Blend Memento Luxe Pistachio and Pear Tart inks with a Brushstix to color the iris and VersaColor Cement ink pad to color around the iris.

Step 5

Add details to the iris using Memento London Fog and Fabrico Pine markers.

Step 6

Cover the iris with the VersaMarker pen and the with the Mboss Clear embossing powder and heat set. This will give the eye a glossy look.

Step 7

Use a palette knife to spread Creative Medium, paste over the tropical leaf stencil at the bottom of the canvas.

Step 8

With the help of a Sponge dauber cover parts and among previously stenciled designs with the Memento Luxe – Pistachio ink. Stencil more leaves with VersaColor Turquoise ink.

Step 9

Enhance the leaves and add detail with markers.

Step 10

Cut a piece of paper at the shape of eye, place it on top and sprinkle or flick All-Purpose Ink Real black on the canvas.
