Hello. Today I am sharing a card as part of the Altenew Educator Certification program. This time the class was Beautiful Details.
This is the first time I felt I was trying something I have never done before. Stepping outside of my usual colouring.
To start the card I stamped the image from the Altenew stamp set ‘Flower Garden.’ I used Memento Tuxedo black ink on Neenah 80lb classic crest cardstock.
I started colouring my image with a base layer of Copics before adding coloured pencils.
I built up the layers of pencil until I was happy with the result. I then cut the image out.
Next I die cut a tag shape and used Distress Oxide ink to blend over the Altenew ‘Watercolor Stripes’ stencil on the tag before adhering my flower image on top.
I then stamped some other floral and leaf images from the same stamp set on to my card base around the area my tag would sit. I added a strip of pink stripes card and a strip of silver glitter card along the edge if the card base before adhering the tag. I added a piece of twine through the tag and a sentiment strip which white heat embossed on a strip of black card.
To complete the card I added a few sequins.
I like how the card turned out even though it challenged me to think outside of my usual colouring and design process.
Thanks for dropping by.
I attached the tag to the card base
