I had a “gold” ink pad from Stampabilities. I didn’t find it particularly GOLD and used it more when I wanted a light brown. I turned to embossing when I wanted gold. Not perfect, but a solution.
Then I heard someone swooning about Delicata Gold. I put the Delicata gold and silver on my Amazon wishlist…and someone bought them for me! I was hopeful, but also ready to be disappointed.
The above pic with three images: top, Stampabilitities Gold; left, Delicata Silver; right, Delicata Gold. The other pics are close ups of each.
The Delicata Gold is AMAYZING. So much gold color and sparkly. This gets a 10/10.
The Delicata Silver is not as awe inspiring as the gold, but still way better than what I expcected! It is clearly silver, but there are some grey undertones and it isn’t as sparkly as the gold. This gets a 8/10.
