It's a very hot day here in the south west of England and I thought while hiding from the sun I'd hang out in my craft room and create my final card for the Altenew Educator Certification Program.
I've been taking the One layer wonders class at Altenew academy which is taught by Kelly Latevola. The class take you through different ways to create one layer cards which look like they have dimension.
So onto how I created my card
I used floral images from two stamp sets along four inks sets in warm sunny colours to create the background images. I will add links below. I masked off the centre section of my card and stamped the flowers and leaves using minimal masking.
I then removed the masking tape and used a black fine liner to edge the blank area where my sentiment was going to be stamped. I then used 3 shades of grey artist markers to flick outwards from the black line, this creates a shadow giving the impression that the blank panel is raised.
I then stamped by sentiment and added a fine border around the edge of the card with a fine liner. Lastly a scattering of sequins adds that special touch.
The second set of flower stamps I used I can not link to yet as they haven't been released.......yes I've given you a sneak peek at something coming in the July release.
I can not tell you how happy I am with this card, it really captures the hot summer vibe that is going on right now.
