Inky Lily Card - Elements Of Floral Composition - AECP Level 3

Hi Everyone, today I am sharing with you my first completed card for the AECP Level 3 Courses.  

I know that I mention this in my previous AECP posts, but honestly after every course I have completed up to now I feel that I learned something new and are improving my knowledge of cardmaking.

This AECP Level 3 – Elements Of Floral Composition Course demonstrated how to use basic elements and rules to accomplish a balanced floral composition and Jaycee provided such great tips to achieve this.  

For today's card I used the Altenew Inky Lily Stamp Set with a few Elements of Art Techniques to create a balanced floral arrangement.

First I embossed white cardstock with the Altenew Inky Trellis Stencil and achieved a beautiful Texture Element of Art Background. This is such a wonderful way to to get more out of your stencils.

Just remember to use an embossing mat and the special sandwich for your die-cut machine in order to get the perfect embossing with the stencil.

Following on from this I added splatters using the Altenew Metallic Watercolor 14 Pan Set and Altenew Watercolor Fine Brush. I adhered it onto the card front using the Altenew Instant Dimension Foam Tape.

I then used the Altenew Stampwheel and stamped the Altenew Inky Lily Stamp Set onto blending cardstock. 

For my flower arrangement I chosen analogous colours and used the Altenew Artist Markers Rock Garden Set D. I just love the Altenew's Alcohol Ink Markers and it blends perfectly. The end result is a beautiful bright and striking coloured image.

Following on from this I added some textured on the lilies stamping with the Altenew Inky Lily Stamp Set using the Altenew Cloud White Pigment Ink.

I then die-cut the stamped images with the Altenew Inky Lily Die Set and used the Space Element to centre my floral arrangement. To achieve some dimension I used 3D foam dots.

To finish I stamped the Altenew Bold Sentiments Stamp with the Altenew Blue Mountain Fresh Dye Ink and adhered it onto the card front using 3D foam dots. I also 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!
