Delightful Day Card - Creative Watercolor Media - AECP Level 2

Hi Everyone, today I am sharing with you my fourth completed AECP Level 2 – Creative Watercolor Media Card. 

The course demonstrated how to take inks and turn them into fun watercolour mediums. For today's card I used a few techniques to get more use out of my ink pads.

First I created my own watercolour background using the Ink Smooshing Technique with the Altenew Cherry Blossom Crisp Dye Ink and Frosted Foliage Fresh Dye Ink. I added some gold splatters.

Following on from this I added it onto the card base using foam tape.

I then used the Embossing Resist Technique, stamped the Altenew Delightful Day Stamps and heat embossed it with the Altenew Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder.

Following on from this I then watercoloured the embossed images with the Altenew Cherry Blossom Crisp Dye Ink and Frosted Foliage Fresh Dye Ink.  I die-cut it with the Altenew Delightful Day Dies and adhered it onto the card front using 3D foam dots.

To finish I stamped the Altenew Delightful Day Sentiment Stamp, die-cut it with a fishtail die and adhered it onto the card front using 3D foam dots. I added some sequins.

I will share more of my projects from the AECP as I work my way through the courses so stay tuned for more cardmaking posts!
