Did you know you can use pigment ink to stamp on surfaces besides paper? Mixed media inks are excellent for other non-porous surfaces, including paper. I love using Altenew Pigment Inks to adorn my crafting studio and other areas of my home. This way, I could truly ‘Craft Your Life' with Altenew!

Embossed Rustic Terracotta Cachepot with Pigment Ink Details
I have a collection of plants and plant propagations in my home. I am constantly trying to find out a way to make the pot look just as interesting as the plant it houses. While I reserve my stone-fired terracotta pots for repotted plants, I leave my baby plants in their nursery pots until it's time to grow.
I used air-dry clay to make my decorative nursery pot cover. With an embossing folder to ‘stamp' onto the surface of the wet clay, I was able to get an interesting pattern. I made the embossed pattern stand out with a little help from some mixed media ink.
Floral Stamped Pigment Ink Decorative Charcuterie Board
Wood veneer was the first surface I tried to use Altenew Pigment Ink when it was first released. I was shocked at how well the mixed media ink preserved detail on the porous wood surface. Other inks will surely feather on top of wood. I used the Craft Your Life Project Kit: Dynamic Blossoms to stamp onto this charcuterie board.
Decorative Throw Pillow with Pigment Ink Details
Altenew recently released a fat quarter fabric collection called Dreamy Bouquet. I used scraps I had from my own projects to make another throw pillow. In order to make a full 18″ x 18″ envelope pillow cover, I used pigment ink to stamp onto an upcycled piece of fabric. Then I ironed on a ‘plantae' kingdom banner to give my pillow a little more personality.
