Good morning crafty friends, today I have a new card to share with you. I created this card after taking the "Stunningly Simple Watercolor Techniques" class at Altenew Academy.
I chose to work with the colour teal as it's my favourite colour and looks so yummy in the warm weather we are experiencing.
I started by stamping and embossing one of the large images from the stamp set in Platinum. I then added a wash of clean water to the card stock before adding teal tones to the card. I used Altenew Sea Shore Inks with a little water to create a colour wash. I started off darker at the top of the card and faded the colour as I moved towards the bottom. I also added flicks of teal to the card to add texture and interest.
Once dry I embossed a piece of white card with the Platinum embossing powder so that I could create some embellishments for my card. I added a piece to the bottom of my card and also die cut my sentiment and some sequins from the same piece, continuing the colour theme.
I learnt so many things from Lydia Evans classes and will be adding the new techniques to my cards.
