June 2015 Ink Drop

Another great Ink Drop from The Goulet Pen Company!

One of the reasons I love about the Ink Drop is that I get to try out colors that I wouldn’t normally buy. This set definitely has a couple inks I wouldn’t have purchased, and it’s nice to see how some inks behave/misbehave ;)  Also, the bonus of trying out samples before choosing to buy a whole bottle is great!

Alright then, to the inks! :)

Theme: Farmer’s Market

Inks:

  • De Atramentis Cucumber (scented)
  • Diamine Bilberry
  • Noodler’s Saguaro Wine
  • Pilot Iroshizuku Yama-guri
  • Private Reserve Avocado

My little Ink Drop Doodle (SN2 paper, outlined with Sakura Pigma pens, shaded with Prismacolor Makers, colored with the inks above):

My favorites are Diamine Bilberry and Private Reserve Avocado. De Atramentis scented inks are always hit or miss for me, this cucumber ink has a nice color, but I can’t take the scent. Pilot’s Yama-Guri was a nice surprise, at first I didn’t like the color, but I can see its uses. Noodler’s Saguaro Wine was my least favorite, I think I’m growing out of that color palette.

What are your favorites this month?
