Now, to discover the perfect match of inks for January...

My contribution is ready (and possibly subconsciously influenced by HJB's New Year wishes, as the colours are certainly similar. I have gone with two inks by the same manufacturer that I find work well together.

 

I'm very impressed with the inks from L'Artisan Pastellier Callifolio range. They are very well-behaved, and have great tones. These two I really like, and I think they look excellent alongside each other.

Very nice, LizB! Love that pair. I was pondering blue and grey, blue and pink / magenta, or green and brown. Sigh. Knowing the theme was supposed to make this easier! :rolleyes:

Lovely combination! I'm generally not a fan of gray inks, but these two together are really gentle and subdued. Great choice!

My options for Perfect partners were very limited (don't worry more ink is on the way), so this was the best that I could come up with. After I found a small pink sample- but discovered I far prefered the subtle colouring to outragious pink and green, purple or shades of grey.

Hopefully before next weeks challange my ink supply will have doubled :)

Nice. Blue + Grey, Purple + Grey. Clearly I'll have to choose something other than grey! :)

 

@fionafish - you've actually got a month before our next combo. :) Time to breathe, or hem and haw - whichever is needed. :lol:

I love this match! Subdued yet harmonious, and theres a calming effect to it.

(I wish my Équinoxe 6 looked like that. Mine has non of the grey teal tone and looks very bright blue. I think LAP is notorious for their inconsistency between batches and bottles.)

I wouldn’t have thought of this combo myself, and it looks very nice!

You know you can have more than one combo!

 

I was thinking that just last night as I was sampling various inks side-by-side. I'm trying to keep the ink count down, though, because I don't use them quickly enough. But don't worry - I decided what to use last night. Now I just need to ink a couple of pens. :D

Looking forward to yours! My entry is ready and I just need some daylight to take photos!

Well, the green is much brighter in person (a lot like Caran d'Ache Delicate Green), but the blue in the photo is pretty accurate... I wanted to use new inks, so I gave up on the pink & blue idea and went this way instead...

What a LOVELY card, and thank you, HJB!!!

Ahhhh, if wishing could give me artistic talent, I'd join you and Tas and many other artist here on FPN :-)

Ooooh, LizB!!! I must chime in to echo the sentiments others have already shared for your pairing. :wub:

I know the first two LAPC inks that I must buy. Very. Soon.

After spending the last ~20 weeks of 2017 telling myself I’d participate in the Weekly Ink Project (and never quite getting around to it), I’m determined to stay on top of the more manageable 2018 incarnation from the start :P

 

For those who can't read my handwriting, this is Kyo no Oto #07 Hisoku and (Sailor) Kobe Nagasawa #64 Sumiyoshi Yamate Jade Green.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.
