Happy Tuesday! Today I am excited to be helping Altenew celebrate their 3rd Anniversary!

Hard to believe that three years has already gone by… I remember when Altenew first came onto the scene. From the beginning they’ve given us tons of fabulous products to work with and even more heart into the crafting community.

In my video for the hop, I will be sharing how I created these two watercolored cards using PH Martin India Inks. For those of you that are not familiar with India Inks, I have some quick details listed here for you:

  • This particular line of India Inks come in 24 colors; both Set 1 and Set 2 each contain 12 colors.

  • Are highly pigmented, non toxic inks.

  • Ph Martin’s India Inks are completely waterproof when dry. Once the ink has dried, you will not be able to reactivate it.

  • All of these Ph Martin India Inks are transparent inks except the white and black inks. These are the only opaque colors in the India Ink line.

  • They will dry up when exposed to air. I recommend keeping the bottles closed up when not in use.

  • Colors can blend together when wet. Once dry, they layer beautifully because they are transparent and waterproof.

ORGANIZING PH MARTIN INDIA INKS

I have a video featuring how I store my Ph Martin India inks, instead of in the plastic open-mouth bottles they come packaged in. Be sure to check it out to learn more!

I watercolored the butterflies that are on my cards with the India inks, as well as the color trail following them.

Because these inks layer beautifully together I was able to achieve some really great effects for the color trail. The butterflies illustrate how easy it is to blend the colors together.

In my video, I only showed the creation of one of these cards since they both were created the exact same way. The only difference between the two cards are the color choices. I used a semi-rainbow color palette for the butterfly above, and a warm color combo for the butterfly below.
