I actually have 2 projects to share from the 6th class I have completed to reach my Altenew Level 2 certification.
I as learning so much from these classes I wish I had more hours in the day to work on them!
The Polychromatic class is about colours, from brights to pastels and different methods of using them together. There are a few techniques I still want to try but I want to share a couple of cards I already completed.
The first is a shameless knock off of instructor, Nina-Marie Trapani's card...it's so eye catching I had to replicate it myself!
Gorgeous isn't it? I added the white details with a white pen, die cut the word from the Altenew Halftone Everything die and of course stamped the balloons with the Birthday Greetings stamp and Altenew Crisp Dye ink.
I die cut the word from a double sided foam sheet but had a bit of trouble lining up the word perfectly. To cover the adhesive showing I spread Glitter Ritz gold glitter over the adhesive and burnished it with my finger.
It adds some nice sparkle!
This next card uses the Camellia Build a Flower set and the lesson on Faux Handwatercoloring.
I inked the stamp with a Zig Clean Colour marker in yellow, spritzed with water and stamped the yellow flower. After cleaning off the stamp and allowing the image dry I inked only the centre portion in a deeper colour for the flower centre. I stamped the leaves in the same manner beginning with the lighter green and then inking the leaf detail stamp in a darker green.
The sentiment was stamped in black Versafine ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. A few Nuvo Crystal drops in Blue Lagoon complete the card.
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!
