Let it shine - Altenew Educator Certification Program

I can't believe it's Wednesday already, I'm looking forward to the weekend and a few extra hours of sleep. Going back to routine after the Christmas holidays has really thrown me.

While the whole house tries to fight off a yucky virus I'm keeping busy by creating pretty cards.

Todays card is Inspired by the Let it shine Altenew Academy class I took this week as part of the Altenew Educator certification program.

I started by stamping the main flower layers using the Cool Summer nights crisp inks onto white cardstock. I then stamped the outline with embossing ink and sprinkled some bonding powder over it. I then used my heat gun to cure it before adding some copper transfer foil. This gives a very pretty effect and a stunning shine.

I repeated the same process for the leaves but use Frayed leaves crisp inks. I then fussy cut both sets of images and set them to one side.

For my back ground I stamped a panel using the smaller images in the stamp set and coloured them using Altenews Artist markers in colours which match the ink pads. I coloured very simply as I dont want them to be the prominent feature of my card.

I then die cut a white front panel and stamped a few of the smaller images in the top right corner as I will be adding my die cut flower and leaves over them, this help to and depth to my card.

My sentiment is also foiled in the same way as the flower and leaves. All that was left to do was but all the pieces together.

Here are the products I used
