Day 12: My Purple Inky Swatches

Today’s Diamine Inkvent color is Memory Lane. This is a beautiful shimmering purple ink. Depending on the lighting is leans a bit towards a rosy color.

Here is T’s swatch for today.

T’s swatches were created with an automatic pen (top) and brush (bottom)

I can see some blue and pink in the underlying colors.

Here’s my swatch selection of colors. When I first saw Memory Lane, my thoughts went immediately to Silver Dawn which also has similar shimmering particles. This looks like a good match. I had to go through last years swatches to see if there were any similar colors. I’ve include Sunset in my initial selection for its similar underlying inky colors.

Here’s an angled picture to show off any shimmering highlights.

Here’s my three choices.

I believe Silver Dawn is a close match to Memory Lane including the silvery shimmers. I had to include Sydney Lavender which happens to be another favorite ink of mine. All three have the blue and pink underlying colors.

Silver Dawn is one of my favorite shimmering inks. It’s a well behaved ink that I’ve used in my fine nib fountain pens for both writing and sketching.

Ink swatches: Diamine Red Inkvent Storm and Night Shade. Robert Oster Silver Dawn (shimmer) and Sydney Lavender. Dominant Industry Sunset (shimmer).
