Irresistible inking techniques - Altenew Educator Certification Program

Today I am sharing a card inspired by the lovey Sara Naumann and her Irresistible Inking techniques class at Altenew Academy.

As you know I am taking part in the Altenew Educator Certification Program and have to take course to pass each level. This course was part of the level 1 requirement but you to can take the course to learn new skills and new ways in which to use your crafty stash.

So what did I make?

This card is very different than my usual style but I adore it, it reminds me of some of the cards my Mum and step farther used to get each other, they were on recycled hand made paper and very muted water coloured images.

I used Sara's tips on brayering a background panel using my Altenew crisp inks, I dab a little ink on to my glass mat and spritzed with water, I then roll my brayer through it and then onto my white cardstock. I first did this with the Caramel Toffee ink, blasted it with my heat gun and then repeated with the rouge ink.

I then stamped and die cut some tulips to co ordinate with my chosen colour palette. I adhered my brayerd background onto some white card and edged the card with Caramel Toffee ink by running my ink pad against the edges of the card.

I finished it off by adding some twine and a sentiment. I used foam pads to adhere the brayerd panel to add some depth and dimension. My sentiment on the outside reads "sending you" and on the inside of my card it says birthday wishes.

Here are links to the items I used
