Today I wanted to share with you my latest card project for the Altenew Educator Certification Program, Level 2.
I have created this card based on lesson 4 of the Color Your Day class by Therese Calvird. Lesson 4 is all about adding color to your projects using layering stamps with inks. I have also used stencils to add color to this project today. The new Altenew layering stamps that come with coordinating stencils make this technique so fun and easy!
Now let's get onto the card shall we?
I have used the stunning new 'Book Engravings' stamp, die and stencil bundle today as well as the Angled Mosaic Embossing Folder. I am loving all of the new embossing folders that Altenew have released lately and it was hard to choose which one to use on this card!
I started by stamping the flower and leaf images onto white cardstock using Altenew Permanent Black Ink then for the leaves I used the coordinating stencil to ink up the solid layer using Limeade ink. The second layer was stamped using the layering stamp in Forest Glades ink.
The flowers were first inked with the stencil in Misty Morning ink. The second layer was stamped in Cloudy Sky ink and the final layer was stamped in Nimbus. I just love this colour combination for an unusual flower colour. To finish them off I added some detail using a white gel pen.
I then die cut all of my pieces before embossing a panel of white cardstock using the Angled Mosaic embossing folder. I used double sided foam tape to attach that to a black top folding A2 card base and used more double sided tape foam to arrange the flowers and leaves for even more dimension.
I stamped the Love And Hugs sentiment from the sketchy florals stamp set in Versamark ink onto black card and embossed with Altenew Pure White embossing powder. I attached it to the card with double sided foam tape before adding some black enamel dots from the Green Fields set to complete the panel.
I hope you enjoyed my project today and I look forward to sharing more with you soon!
