Hello again. I have a couple of cards to share today after going through another lesson at the Altenew Academy, and trying a different technique:
This first card is using the colours from Try Stampin On Tuesday – yellow, turquoise, and purple. The second card just because I couldn’t stop myself….. :
As per the lesson, I took one of the layering stamps from Altenew Beautiful Day – the second more solid layer, applied water-colour to it, added a little spritz, and stamped down onto water-colour card.
I went back in with a water-colour brush to swish the colour around a little – but not much. The I did the same with the second layer of the leaves and a yellow water-colour, covered the flower – with my hand – and splattered the Catherine Pooler Aquatini around, before letting it dry and stamping the sentiment. Talk about blue splattered hand! Also – if it’s water-colour – why doesn’t it come off the hand easily? Who knew!
The second card – I just couldn’t stop with the little flowers. Too many, I know, but there we go….I still think it makes a cute little card. I don’t know what happened with the yellow leaves, probably because I had some colour left on my brush, or the Aquatini wasn’t dry, but I think the merged colour adds some dimension. I also didn’t stamp enough leaves, but I was took much into stamping the little Aquatini flowers to leave space!
I’m now going back a few months and going through the One Layer Wonder course…..I’ll be practicing that too, I am sure.
I shall also be entering the first card into the current Altenew Challenge.
