What is your favorite brand of ink to use? It can be dye inks, pigment inks, distress, chalk, StazOn, ....whatever!

I have/love/use CTMH, SU, Tim Holtz distress inks, and a few Hero Arts Shadow inks as well. :)

I love the way the Tim Holtz and Hero Arts inks stamp, and recently Studio Calico came out with Color Theory inks, I've had a couple instances where they've gone blotchy but having gotten used to them now (I'm not a stamper, so I am learning) I can now get a nice clean image with them with no problem.

Depending on what I want to do with it. I love Colorbox Fluid Chalk when I stamp greetings in cards, I have some colors in large stamp pads. Otherwise I mostly use Distress ink and Tim Holtz distress embossing ink. I just bought a bottle of embossing in to use when I want to heat emboss die cuts.

I have a bunch of colors of Colorbox Fluid Chalk inks too, love them for cards and inking edges when I want color. Have lots of Tim's inks too. But for most of the time I think I use either the Black Stazon, or Archival Ink by Ranger.

Versafine for text & fine line stamps. I own every color of distress ink and use them most. I like archival inks for water coloring. Those are my go-to inks. Chalk inks just don't do it for me, though I like the little Prima edgers and have a few of those. They are so much more ergonomic than the cats-eye inks. I have momento inks for copic coloring, but don't use them much for anything else though I have a ton of the minis.

I love Tim Holtz Distress ink pads and Stampin' Up! I'm also really liking the Simon Says Stamp inks the more I use them. They are water proof when dry, which means no smearing or bleeding when I use Stickles or other mediums over them.

The ink you use depends on the look you are going for and the technique you are going to use.

If I could only choose ONE brand, it would be Versafine. It can be used with or w/o embossing powder, works beautifully with acrylic and other clear stamps as well as rubber stamps and give a clear crisp image. My only complaint is that the color selection is very limited. Having said that, I own all of the Memento dye inks, most of the TH distress inks, countless SU inks, and tons of others  ;)

(I used to teach card making classes)! There are pros and cons to most of them, but Versafine is the most Versatile, I think, at least for what I do.
