Hello! A continuation of my cardmaking journey with Altenew classes, today I would like to share a card I made, inspired by the class “Celebration: Stencil Techniques”. In my card, I created the background with adding texture paste through a stencil. This has been my all time favourite technique whenever I feel that I want to be “artsy” .
Color combo: Mango Smoothie, Butter Bar (Hero Arts), Peach Perfect, Orange Soda (Hero Arts) Leaves: Green Hills (Hero Arts), Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades
First of all, I wanted some colour on my background, so I blended some Mountain Mist ink onto the card. I focused more onto the centre of the card. Then I took a triangle stencil and added a thin layer of texture paste randomly onto the card panel. Once its dry, I diecut the panel with a stitched rectangle die.
Then I stamped the flowers from the Altenew Garden Treasure set and the leaves from the Vintage Flowers set on a separate cardstock and fussy cut them. I stamped the sentiment (from the Beautiful Day stamp set) with Dark Chocolate ink, right in the middle of my background. Then I build my floral arrangement on top of it.
Again, I added fine line details with my metallic gel pens on the flowers for the extra shine. I think this technique is here to stay and also a good use of my gel pens!
That’s all for today! Thanks for stopping by and Happy crafting!
