Altenew ECP (Level 1) – Irresistible Inking Techniques

Altenew ECP (Level 1) – Irresistible Inking Techniques

My 9th submission for Altenew Educator Certification Program. This card is based on an inking technique taught by Sara Naumann. I used the Altenew mini ink cube directly on the card base to add colour and texture.

For this card, I have used the Altenew Build-a-flower Aster Stamp set along with Halftone Thanks stamp and die set for the sentiment.

First, I took an A2 size Neenah Solar white 110lbs cardstock. On this I applied Altenew Frosty Pink ink from the Red Cosmos Collection. While applying ink on the base, I was twisting my wrist too, so that there was an added circular pattern formed.

Then I stamped two Asters using the stamp set. One just the outline and the other, I layered using the inks from the Red Cosmos set. On the outline image, I did use Copic Marker C3 on the shadow areas.

For the sentiment ‘Thanks’ I layered six die-cuts. The top layer I coloured using Copic Marker C5 and then used Aqua Shimmer Pen for the shimmer and shine.

Once the elements were ready. I then stamped a check pattern using a stamp from my stash, at the bottom part of the card base. After this I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment “for all you do” on a vellum strip.

For the final bit, I just assembled all the elements and sentiment on the card base using foam tape and adhered some sequins from my stash too.

Hope you like the card… thanks for visiting.
