Hello Card - Color Your Day - AECP Level 2

Hi Everyone, today I am sharing with you my second completed AECP Level 2 – Color Your Day Card. 

The course demonstrated how to feel more confident using colour in projects. For today's card I used a few techniques to create my card and got the inspiration from the Altenew June 2023 Inspiration Challenge.

First I die-cut cardstock with the Altenew Rattan Stripes Die and adhered it onto the card front. You can create such beautiful texture in different ways with this Altenew Rattan Stripes Die.

Following on from this I stamped with the Altenew Snowing Stamp randomly onto the card front using the Altenew Cherry Blossom Crisp Dye Ink and Woodland Escape Redwood Fresh Dye Ink.

I then stamped the Altenew Delicate Garden Flower Stamp onto blending cardstock and coloured it with the Altenew Artist Markers Mystic Garden Set JRock Garden Set D and Red Cosmos Markers

Tip: When colouring with Altenew Alcohol Ink Markers it is important to use blending cardstock to prevent bleeding.

Following on from this I die-cut the focal image with the Altenew Delicate Garden Flower Die and adhered it onto the card front using 3D foam dots.

I then stamped the Altenew Delicate Garden Sentiment Stamp, heat embossed it with the Altenew Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder and adhered it onto the card front using 3D foam dots. 

To finish I adhered it onto the card base using foam tape and 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!
