Altenew Inks Blog Hop

Hello Hello!

We have been waiting for this day for quite some time, and it is finally here! Today we are celebrating the release of Altenew inks!

The design team have been raving about these inks, so what makes them so amazing? Here are some of their properties:

  • Water-based, you can water color with them!
  • Crisp Impression and no bleeding, perfect for detailed images.
  • Smooth coverage, you will see in a minute how smooth they are!
  • The colors retain their brightness after drying.
  • Very minimal staining, preserving the transparency of clear stamps.

Our first release has twelve colors, including black. These colors were carefully chosen so that the ones in the same family coordinate with each other very well.

Altenew ink paletteIn our first example, all the inks were used:

Vintage Roses + Altenew Crisp Inks


Notice how smooth the impressions are? The four layered roses has all the colors in a column from the above color chart. The three layered roses utilize the three lighter shades in a column. This is just one way to use them, you can mix and match and even use second or third generation stamping to get more out of these inks. The sentiment was stamped using Jet Black.



Here is another example of Altenew inks at work. Once again, notice smooth coverage and the crisp details.


We mentioned earlier that you can use these inks for water coloring. In this card, we have done just that. Warm Sunshine, Caramel Toffee and Paper Bag were used to color the top flower, and Coral Berry and Ruby Red were used for the bottom flower.


These inks blend quite well on paper. In this card, a rectangular panel was masked off, and two inks (Grapevine and Warm Sunshine) were applied using a sponge applicator.


It is time to hop and find out what the rest of team has in store for you!

Your next stop is: May Sukyong Park
