I am so happy to be back today with a post for my fifth completed class at Altenew Academy – Easy Ink Blending Techniques. I can’t believe I am already half way through the Level 1!! Yay!
I have created a few projects using techniques we’ve learned/practiced in this class and I love them all but this one was my favorite.
Inspiration for this design came in after I already had my images blended and fussy cut. My original design was to have a white background and the top floral piece on the bottom part of the card (images and sentiments are form Dearest Friend stamp set).
Before I blended the ink on the embossed image I tested a few color combos and I ended up using the panel with tested colors for my background on this card design.
To the inked background I added a few splatters with clean water, and once it was dry added vellum to mute the colors a bit so my embossed top floral piece would stand out more. I heat embossed the sentiment and a branch on the vellum before adding it to the inked background.
To adhere the top floral piece I used foam tape for some dimension.
Now that my card panel was complete I adhered the entire piece to my card base backing it with craft foam.
For some extra shine I added a few gem stones and that completed this card!
Thank you for stopping by today! I will be back soon with my next Altenew Academy project!
Have a wonderful day 🙂
