Wow! That flower is fabulous. I can't believe it's made from Satin ribbon, I bet it looks awesome in real life. Wonderful sketch and a beautiful card.

Another beautiful creation, Piali! Love that gorgeous flower - satin ribbon, really? You're such a clever girl!!

I have two recommendations for white ink. I love, love, love my Hero Arts white pigment chalk ink. It works really well. I also like the PTI snow white pigment ink, but probably prefer the Hero Arts ink because it dries really fast. I got my Hero Arts ink at American Crafts has also recently come out with new pigment ink. I saw them on Two Peas. I'd love to try them . . . might just have to place an order to see what I think. Hope this helps, missy!!

Hey girl. Fabbo card! Love the flower! So happy to see you at OCC Sketch!

I use SU whisper white ink. It's my fav. It's true white. It does not dry as fast as die ink, but faster than most pigment inks. I don't care for the Staz-On white at all.
