Love the ink pads
Great set for floral images.
I'm a fan of Altenew inks in general. I wanted to add purples to my ink collection and Altenew has a good range of purples compared to other companies. I liked it also came with greens since I want to use this for my floral stamps and dies from Altenew.
I agree with some of the other comments about the packaging ... the ink pads are hard to open. I don't have arthritis or other problems with my hands but those who do I would imagine this would be even more frustrating and prevents them from using them. I hope Altenew considers improving the design.
Sorry to write a bad Altenew review, because I really love the company & its products. I’ve had ink cubes in the past. These colors are so beautiful & just the shade I need, but they are really hard to open. Really. It takes a while to use just the right amount of pressure to pop open & not end up with my thumb or fingers getting inky. Then I’ll close them so they won’t dry up, only to need to open them once again. Not stackable either. I find that I’m not eager to use them. 😕
I love these coordinated sets, they always go perfectly together and the colors in this set are so lovely, I know I'll get a ton of use from them, especially the greens. I'm a new card maker so having these sets is so helpful when stamping the layering stamps, I'm excited to add more to my collection.
