New Ink Collections

Let’s take a closer look at these new ink collections. I love that they’re muted and “moody”. They will be the perfect go-to for wintry designs, and refined, classy looks. I can see using them for engagement and wedding cards. Can’t you?

In a watery mood

There were so many ideas floating through my head when I started working with these inks! Of course, I swatched them out to get an idea of their true stamped color and what they would look like watercolored. It was then that I settled on some watercolor techniques to really show off these amazing hues!

The trio really works well together (and you can get them as a bundle!). The yellows are a beautiful golden shade that helps the blues to pop. While the purples bring in such depth to the inky blues. These jewel tones are just what the Altenew Crisp Dye Ink collection needed! I’m using the mini cube sets, but of course, you can get the full size ovals too!
