Fun Times at An Altenew Virtual Workshop

 Hello Crafty Friends,

I recently attended my fellow Altenew Certifed Educator Penny's workshop and it was lots of fun and informative! I never realize it's possible to colour white glitter card stock with alcohol ink, although I chose to die cut my pieces from pre-coloured glitter card stock.

We made three cards with the Hibiscus Garden 3D Die Set and Penny walked us through putting this these layered die cuts together and shared a few tips and tricks along the way.

Here's a closer look at the first card:


I just love all the gold on this card, the gold mirror card stock adds such great shine. I used the sentiment from the Wildflower Garden stamp set and stamped it in Enchanted Gold pigment ink.

This next card is a shaker card, the shaker window is created with the base die cut.


What I really like about this card is that it uses just a few of the die cut layers from the large bloom to add detail to the shaker winder. This was very easy to make.


This is my favourite of the three cards. The sparkle from the glitter paper is so gorgeous in real life. I used glitter papers from Memory Box but Penny showed us how to create custom coloured glitter card stock with white glitter card stock and alcohol inks.

I added a few more flowers than Penny's sample card but I love how this turned out!

I had so much fun putting together these. layered hibiscus flowers I cut a few extra and created a fourth card.



I added some black splatters with Jet Black Watercolor brushmarker and also stamped the sentiment in Enchanted Gold pigment ink.

I so enjoyed this workshop with Penny and look forward to future ones from her.

Thanks for taking a look!
