This is my 8th submission for the Altenew ECP Level 1. This class was successfully conducted by Nichol Magouirk. I found this class a bit challenging as it was not about individual images, but about creating a scene using stamps.
For my card I have used the Altenew Potted Plant Stamp, Rustic Linen Stamp and City Scene Stencil. Besides these I have also used a window die and a woodgrain stamp.
Firstly, I created the window scene of my card using the City Scene Stencil, and distress oxides in the colours Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Black Soot, Weathered Wood and Pumice Stone. I took a Neenah Solar White 80 lbs card stock and with the help of Picket Fence Studio Life Changing Brushes I created the city scene.
Next, as I wanted to give dimension to the window frame, I cut 3 die cuts from the window frame die. I layered these die cuts to create the widow frame and also stuck the 2 strips of paper cut separately, perpendicular to each other to complete the window frame. Once the frame was ready, I stuck the same on top of the city scene created earlier.
As the window itself is A2 size, I then decided to make this card a bit bigger. The base card stock measures 5.5” x 8.5”. I have used Neenah Solar White 110 lbs for the base, as it is really sturdy. To create the base, I stamped 80% of the top portion using the Rustic Linen Stamp and Pumice Stone oxide to give the wall effect. On the 20% bottom part of the card, I stamped using the wood grain stamp and Weathered Wood oxide to give the floor effect.
I then used the Potted Plant Stamp and Altenew inks in shades of greens to stamp the various images. I did fussy cut the images.
Once the images were ready, I first stuck the window frame to the base. Next, I arranged and stuck the various pots of plants using the foam squares, giving dimension as required.
Finally, I stamped and cut the sentiment “Have a Nice Day” from some Pearlized Vellum Paper and stuck on the card. This completed the card for me.
Thank you for stopping by once again…. Happy Crafting…
