Hello and welcome! I've started taking some online classes at Altenew.com and these cards were for the All About Layering 1 - Lesson 1. The idea was to take different stamps from the same set to make a background. The center card is more like the example card; all outlines were stamped with Jet Black ink with second layer stamping in Frosty Pink and Coral Berry inks. At the end it seemed a little too black and white so I used a Forest Glades Artist Alcohol Marker to fill in a silhouette on the larger leaf cluster. I have to say, having Alcohol Markers that coordinate with papers and inks is just magical for an artist.
Although I only had to make one card, I really wanted to experiment with stamping multiple colors on the outline stamps for a softer look. I used Coral Berry and Forest Glades inks for the outlines and kept the Frosty Pink ink for the small flowers. Then on the little floral sprigs, I used Lavender Fields ink on one card and Sea Glass ink on the other and backed them with Deep Iris and Frosty Pink papers (respectively). The sentiment comes from the Best Sentiments set and were stamped with Jet Black, Deep Iris, and Coral Berry inks to match the papers.
This was so much fun to do! I can't wait to see what comes next.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs, Eileen
