Hello. Today I am sharing a card I made as part of the Altenew Educator Certification Programme.
This card was made as part of the ‘artists watercolor 101 for paper crafters’ class. The class was all about watercolour techniques and how to get the best results.
I love watercolour and I don’t get my paints out as often as I should so this class was the perfect opportunity for some practice.
To start the card I selected the Altenew Happy Pomegranates stamp set. I took a piece of Arches cold pressed watercolour card cut to the same size as my A6 card base. I selected my Versafine onyx black ink and using my Misti stamping too stamped the pomegranates at the top centre of the card. I used the Misti to allow me to stamp the image twice as watercolour card has a texture and although my images stamped perfectly it can be stamped again if needed.
I stamped the pomegranates image again on to a piece of masking paper and cut this out to make a mask. I placed the mask over the top of the image then stamped the other leaf images around this.
Once the ink was dry I started watercoloring. I used the new Altenew watercolors
I added a layer of paint at a time, Making sure each layer was dry before adding the next. Once I was happy with my painting I worked on the sentiment.
I die cut the thanks from card three times and stacked them with liquid glue. I took the rest of the sentiment from the Altenew ‘Paint a flower – rose’ stamp set and stamped it below where the thanks die cut would be placed. I then adhered the die. To finish off I added some sequins and cut down the panel and adhered it to my card base.
Take care for now.
