Welcome to the ALTENEW DECEMBER 2019 INK RELEASE BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY. You are arriving from Kelly's blog ( a list of all the participants is available at the bottom of this post).
If you love stamps and inks as much as i do, then you must understand my excitement for this new release. The new ink sets -TRANQUILITY, SUGAR PLUM, and FALL HARVEST are high quality inks that can be used for stamping, coloring and mixed media. I loved them so much that i set to use the three sets in my projects.
I started this page with the Heart Builder Stencil and the Fall Harvest ink set . A bit of masking tape was used to block the bottom part of the layout, so that heart impression only sets on the top two thirds of the page.
While the background dried completely, i used the Sugar Plum and Tranquility Ink sets , Obsidian Black Pigment ink with the Frilly Petals Stamp and Die set to create all the florals for this page.
To assemble the page, i cluster the florals around the picture of my daughter and mom, and then also added a third cluster of flowers to the left of the page. Here i used the Across the Pond stamp set to add a sentiment that serves as the title for the page.
I love the color combination, and the soft colors of the flowers. I had so much fun creating this page, that i decided to use the three ink sets to create a second layout ( one of my favorite projects of the year) .
This time, i decided to block the center of the layout with masking tape and use the TRANQUILITY ink set to create a gradient /ombre effect across the center of the page using the inks and a blending brush.
While the inked background set in place, i used the Grateful Heart Stamp set and the Sugar Plums and Fall Harvest ink sets and Black Obsidian inks to create all the florals for the page. I took my time fussy cutting the images .
To complete this page, I used the Fancy Greetings stamp set, Gold Pigment ink and Clear transparent embossing powder to create the title and small sentiment for the layout. The following video will show you how it all came together:
I hope these have inspired you to take a look and try the new Altenew ink sets. They are a great addition to the Altenew ink collection. But i think you all are waiting for the best part of the blog hop... GIVEAWAY
