Pop Art meets Altenew

Today I am sharing a card I created after watching one of Lydia Evans video tutorials she created for Altenew. You can see the post here, Lydia using a halftone stamp to create Pop art card to die cut from. As soon as I saw the video I knew I had to give it a go and put my spin on it, so here goes......

Using the Halftone Circles Stamp set I stamped several circles in all the shades of  the Tea Party mini inks, these will be for the flowers layers. I then stamped the leaf layers using the Green Meadows mini inks.

I then set about cutting all the layers for the flowers and leaves using the Peony Dreams 3D dies. Once everything was cur and release from the dies I stacked and glued them together.  Toadd some definition to the layers and add striking detail I used a black fineliner pen to outline the layers. I also ran a black alcohol marker around the edge of the flowers and leaves.

I wanted a background for the flowers to sit against but didn't want anything to fussy or detailed. This is where the Watercolor stripes cover die came into play. I cut it from white cardstock and adhered it to a black card base. The black and white is the perfect backdrop for the pop art style flowers and leaves. I adhered everything using glossy accents, it's my go to wet adhesive.

The last thing to do was to add a sentiment, I chose the "stay awesome my friend" from the
Leaf Canopy stamp set. I heat embossed it on to black card using Altenew's Clear embossing ink and Pure white crisp embossing powder.

All the items used can be purchased from the Altenew store
