You Can Mix Layer Stamp Inks

Altenew ink sets each include four shades of one color. They are curated for gorgeous fool-proof layer stamping. That being said, it’s easy to forget we can mix up the color families.

When you purchase Altenew Oval Crisp Dye Ink Sets you also receive the swatch cards you see above. I keep these within reach and refer to them often to choose project colors.

Initially, I chose Tea Party, Cherry Blossom, Red Cosmos. Cherry Blossom was too blue to go with the other color families so I switched it out for Red Sunset.

Front Flower Pink Ink Combo

  1. Obsidian Pigment Ink (outline stamp)
  2. Frosty Pink | Red Cosmos (most solid layer)
  3. Pink Pearl | Tea Party
  4. Blush | Red Sunset (double stamped)
  5. Coral Berry| Red Cosmos
  6. Heart Beat | Red Sunset

Back Flower Pink Ink Combo

  1. Obsidian Pigment Ink
  2. Skipped the most solid layer to retain white highlights
  3. Frosty Pink | Red Cosmos (double stamped)
  4. Blush | Red Sunset (double stamped)
  5. Coral Berry | Red Cosmos (partial stamped)
  6. Ruby Red | Red Cosmos & Heart Beat | Red Sunset

Ruby Red was too strong a color for these light flowers. Heart Beat is a much better choice.

Bottom line? You can mix layer stamp inks.

Flower Centers

  1. Buttercream | Summer Afternoon
  2. Sunkissed | Summer Afternoon


  1. Frayed Leaf | Green Fields
  2. Forest Glades | Green Fields
    Evergreen | Green Fields

Mixing the Tea Party and Red Sunset inks warm up the otherwise cool Red Cosmos pinks adding more interest to the blooms. Peach Perfect is another ink that would go well with these combinations.

Of course you don’t have to stay within a particular color, you can also layer blue, teal, and green or yellow, orange, and red inks. Think outside the box and mix away.

That’s a wrap, do let me know what you think in the comments.
