This course is all about colors and the feelings they evoke. Red, for example, signifies passion and love.
Green- Soothing, Natural, and Growth
I chose green for my first project. I began by taping Altenew’s Feathery Stencil to white card stock. Next, I blended distress oxide inks in twisted citron, mowed lawn, and lucky clover. Once the ink was dry, I used a stitched die cut it slightly smaller than A2 size.
I added a gold glitter card stock strip to the center with double-sided tape. Next, I added a lightly inked circle to the center with foam tape. For the sentiment, I used Altenew’s fancy “for you” die. I cut it several times using white card stock and once in green. Finally, I used liquid glue to stack them and attach them.
I masked the newly stamped leaf images and blended squeezed lemon distress oxide ink onto the card background.
I stamped another floral image in a separate area, fussy cut, and set it aside.
Once the ink was dry, I used a stitched die-cut in a slightly smaller size than A2. I also cut Altenew’s fancy “hello” die five times. I glued 4 in a stack and colored the 5th one with a black marker, and glued it to the top of the stack. Finally, I attached it to the card with liquid glue.
For a final touch, I added a thin black satin ribbon to the side.
I created this card with Altenew’s Bountiful Butterflies Layering Stencil. I began with the background stencil, and tattered rose distress oxide ink.
I followed with spun sugar, worn lipstick, and picked raspberries for the butterfly stencil.
I cut my piece smaller than my pink base card and attached a ribbon to the center with double-sided tape.
I heat embossed “I just adore you” from Altenew’s Sentiment Strips 2 onto black card stock and adhered it to the ribbon with double-sided tape.
