Subtitle: A Post In Which I Ramble A Bit With a Vague Ink Theme
I love ink blue, though having said that when it comes to the actual ink in pens I always choose black. Amongst blues though, it is anything that looks inky, indigo or denim that really appeals to me, rivaled perhaps by anything in the greyed aqua range.
In addition to the fact that I always receive books for Christmas and have happily had my nose buried in some for the past few days (ink=books, get it?), ink blue is one of my favourite colours, from the darkest ink, to a medium indigo and a faded denim blue, and as a Christmas gift I also received a beautiful pashmina in these colours. I wrap myself up in it while reading. I am tired from the Christmas events but I look significantly better (and thus less tired) in these inky tones than I would in black (Blue is my new Black). They are soft and muted. This looks rather like someone doodled designs in blue ink, shading some spots more heavily and thus darker. (It's looking slightly more teal on my screen at the moment but I've got a post sunset dimming feature on my screen which gives everything a yellowish-greenish tint so that could be why. It's definitely blue like pen ink, and indigo dye)
Some more ink I received for Christmas, admittedly it is black:
