Today, we are celebrating, probably, my favorite inks - PIGMENT INKS - When the first set were release a few years ago, I could never imagine the possibilities of the inks. But of course Altenew helped and created 4 sets of pigment inks that are just versatile, crisp, and overall super versatile.
The best part of the pigment inks is their ability to create crisp impressions on porous surfaces. This means you can use the inks in other surfaces other than paper. All you need is a bit of heat to secure the color to the surface.
The formulation of the pigment inks allows them to stay fluid atop of paper. This property is what makes them ideal for mixed media, as you can convert the ink from watercolor to an embossing medium. These inks are great for blending, stamping, embossing, coloring, and watercolor ... Let me show you what have created for today's hop:
I used the warm tones of the inks to create the background of the page. I simply dragged the ink pads along the edge of the page, and set it with some heat.
Once the ink set, I used Sapphire Pigment ink to stamp the images - Forever in Love stamp set- at the edge of the paper. Then used the Tye Dye Mottifs and Inspirational Quotes stamp set to heat embossed the title to the page.
I used the same technique from the background to create one of my journal cards. Then once again, I used Sapphire pigment ink and embossing powder to create the soft embossed flap out of vellum paper.
I just love all the things that you can create with just the Pigment ink pads. Be sure to check all the Pigment Ink collection in Altenew's shop. Remember you can always check the entire collection, just click here.
