Card for Altenew Watercolor Class (Day 2)

I'm trying to hone my watercoloring skills for my cards and am taking Altenew Academy's Watercolor Basics and Beyond class. I love their classes - very inexpensive (added bonus) but full of great info and techniques. I have made a card using the techniques from Day 2 - Watercolor Wash - using a stencil - love this! It really came out nicely.




I just got some Arches watercolor paper - both hot and cold press. This card uses the hot press paper - very smooth. The background has a rainbow vibe to it - a happy accident!

PTI No Stamps - All Dies Card Challenge

It's Papertrey Ink's 11th Anniversary! YAY! To celebrate they've had tons of inspiration and challenges along the way. My cards for today are for the Use Only Dies - No Stamps! Challenge. With so many amazing dies, this was a fun and easy challenge. I made some valentine cards using some Yupo paper I just got with alcohol inks. So fun to use!




The hearts are cut from 1 sheet of Yupo that I put about 4 colors on plus some pearl fixative. The word dies are die cut from flocked black paper and on the base of my cards, I sprayed some Perfect Pearls through a stencil.

Floral Card for Altenew Inspiration Challenge

Happy 2018! Today I have a card for Altenew's January 2018 Inspiration Challenge.


I love these colors - one of my fav combos - and used them to create a birthday card.



My card design was inspired by this card and this one. For the background, I lightly used a blending tool to apply the Nuvo mousse in a few spots to highlight the woodgrain texture.

Ingredients: Altenew Floral Fantasy; MFT Happy Birthday Die-namics; PTI Wet Paint; Ranger wood grain card stock

Tis the Season - Card #4

Here is my last card for Altenew's Card Class - Tis the Season. This card features die cut windows with some ink blending to bring the images to life!


Since I used Distress Oxide inks, I sprinkled some water over the images to bring out that oxide effect!

Thanks for visiting! I adore Altenew's classes and they have a last minute holiday card class coming up!
