For the Love of Colour-AECP Project

Hello!

Sharing this card inspired by Lesson 5 of the Altenew Academy For the Love of Colour course. I LOVE glitter so making a card with it was a no brainer for me 😄.

{supplies: Altenew Sweetest Pea stamp set, Halftone Squares die, Artist Markers; Glitter Ritz Micro Fine Cool Highlight glitter; GinaK Amalgam Ink; Tim Holtz Metallic Card stock, 3D Botanical embossing folder; Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Confetti}

To create the glittered image first apply Sookwang or any double sided adhesive to white card stock. The size of card stock will be determined by the stamp image you choose.

Remove the backing, sprinkle transparent microfine glitter over the adhesive and burnish by rubbing with your finger over the adhesive. Tap off any excess glitter and also wipe with a Swiffer cloth to remove any glitter that does not burnish.

Next, stamp your image with black ink, I used GinaK amalgam ink, Altenew Permanent Black ink would work as well, both are copic friendly.


Now it's time to add colour, I used my Altenew Artist alcohol markers although the lesson suggests other types of markers. I have coloured with alcohol markers on glitter in the past but you must use a VERY LIGHT HAND to do so or the colour will feather outside the stamped image. You can see the sparkle in the image above.

Once the colouring was completed I taped 2 Halftone square dies equidistant from each other to create a square frame and cut the frame from silver metallic card stock. I then adhered the frame over the image with foam tape, cutting the glitter piece with scissors to fit behind the frame.



Half of the card stock base was embossed with the Tim Holtz 3d Botanical embossing folder, you can see the dimension it creates above. The framed image is then adhered to the card stock base, sentiment was stamped before adhering the image. Pretty Pink Posh sparkling clear confetti adds a little more shine to the card.

Here's one last look at the complete card:


Thanks for stopping by!
