Archival Ink

Someone asked me a question about the Archival Ink (Ranger) I used on the fabric Christmas bags...

This is the coolest idea! Thanks for your tutorials - just awesome! Does ironing the stamping make it waterproof?? Just wondering, have a scarf this might be fun to use it on.

I answered the comment and said I was not sure if the ink was "waterproof" but by using Archival Ink it would keep the ink from coming off on her hands, or neck in the case of the scarf.

So, last night I was stamping Christmas tags with my friend Liz...

and I am stamping away and noticed the lid of the Archival ink pad...


"WATERPROOF"
what a dork, I should have noticed that sooner.  So, "Clever Karen", stamp that scarf and send us picture of yourself wearing it in the snow (or the pool, since it will be waterproof).
