Hot Pink Ink
Today my new pink ink arrived in the post (along with a new silver ink, tools and more wood blocks), so tonight I experimented with a 1970s wedding block bought on ebay in a mad moment.
Tonight was only the second time we've used the Adana, and I managed it all by myself without too much interference from Jon, although I did need him to tighten the screws and take the photographs of course...
We still don't have any rollers, so I hand inked the block with our tiny roller instead. I think I'm getting the knack of how much pressure to use on the handle now, and it didn't take long to rattle a dozen notecards off whilst our pasta was cooking. It was such good fun I've decided to turn them into proper cards rather than just test cards, so I'm going to add some text this weekend in my new silver ink!
I think Jon is almost won over by the thought of bright pink ink, it certainly beats the boring tubes of black ink that came in the same order!
