Altenew Mixed Media Ink Lovers Blog Hop + Giveaway

 

Hello there!
Welcome to the ALTENEW MIXED MEDIA INK LOVERS BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY.  You are arriving from Justine's blog - a list of all the participants is available at the bottom of this page for your convenience- 

Today, Altenew is hosting a new  and fun blog hop that focuses on the new and amazing Mixed Media Inks.   These inks are so versatile, as they create crisp impression on most porous surfaces.  They react beautifully with water, are perfect for embossing, and the bet feature they become permanent once you heat them up. I have created a few projects with them on canvas and cardstock, so today i wanted to show you how these inks can transform your mixed media and memory keeping world.


This new layout started with white cardstock and the idea of showcasing the inks in a series of techniques that will help you transform your projects.


My first choice was to add a bit of Frayed Leaf mixed media ink to the background as a watercolor wash.  I simply diluted the ink with water and applied it with a brayer.   I let it dry and then softly heat the ink in place.  I used the  Dare to Dream Stamp Set to stamp the designs on the top of the watercolor application with the same color ink.



Next, i used Forest Glades Mixed Media ink to create a second layer of stamping on the background.  Here, i added a bit of Crystal Clear Embossing powder to the impression, and used my heat gun to create the embossed texture on the page.



While the background set in place.  I used the new Beauty Within stamp set/die/coloring stencil and the two sets of Mixed Media inks to create the flowers and leaves for the page.   The new stencil makes creating the florals a breeze, all i needed was an ink blending tool.  The inks are so crisp and rich that produce these awesome results.



Just love how easy this came together, and how much fun it was to put together using the new Mixed Media inks and other Altenew goodies!


To celebrate the Mixed Media Ink Lovers Blog Hop, Altenew is offering a free class with every order of the Mixed Media Ink Bundle.
