Here are my thoughts on the NEW MFT Hybrid inks that were just released this month! I've been playing with them quite a bit, and you guys have already seen me use the black ink in a couple of videos so far.

EDITED TO ADD: Answering several questions I've been getting! You can't stamp and emboss with these inks - they dry too quickly! Hybrid inks will stain your stamps - most inks do. It's something that doesn't bother me - means my stamps are well loved ;). I totally forgot to try these out with Prismacolor pencils and odorless mineral spirits - once I do I will update everyone!
ETA2: These inks DO work with Prismacolors and OMS (odorless mineral spirits)!! I'll have a video showing that coming up for the May MFT release. But I wanted to add that info in here as well!
And make sure to check out this post on MFT's blog (this is the one I mention in the video) where Kim shows several different things you can do with the inks and stamps them onto all sorts of materials.
I'll link to all the new inks right here but make sure to scroll down and check out the cards I made!
Here are the cards I showed in the video - the Mom card and video will get posted in a couple of days!
I stamped the image and sentiment with Black Licorice Hybrid ink - it works perfectly with Copics!
I added a bit of Wink of Stella clear shimmer to parts of her outfit too.
And my second card:
I stamped the poinsettia with Red Hot Hybrid ink then watercolored it with some MFT dye inks (Red Hot, Wild Cherry, Paver Red and Banana Split). I show in the video how it would have looked had I stamped it with black ink instead.
So hard to capture on camera but I went over the outline of the poinsettia with my Wink of Stella gold shimmer brush so it's all sparkly and shimmery :).
I kept the inside of the card simple again and just stamped the poinsettia a couple of times with the Red Hot Hybrid ink.
FINAL THOUGHTS - if you watched the video you can tell how much I love these inks. I'm really excited to have TWO options for every MFT color (well soon to be every color!) depending on my mood and what I am trying to achieve with my creation. I have several ideas brewing to show you guys with these inks so stay tuned :) :) :).
