Beyond Basic Backgrounds
June 8, 2019
I really enjoyed taking the Beyond Basic Background class. It was packed full with lots of great Ideas. I chose to make my own background and to make a in-laid die out of all the class ideas.
So after I made my background, it was time to make a fun card. I used a round die to cut out the center of the card.
I cut out several. Look how nice they all fit together like a puzzle that can be mixed and matched.
I then used the large stamp from the Garden Treasure stamp set. I embossed it in white to match my background.
Next I needed a graduation card so I used my congrats die cut from Altenew’s script. I tried putting it directly on the card . For me it was a bit busy so I cut out a backing and tried it and that was the look I wanted. Thanks for stopping by. Till next time happy stamping!
Hello Teri! Wonderful creation with your first course in Level 2! I love the simplicity of your design. To achieve a even more polished look, I would love to see a more even ink-blended for the background and perhaps use a smaller focal image (with a smaller die), so your beautiful background shows more? Just a thought. Your process video is lovely! Well done! Thanks so much for entering your beautiful work in Altenew AECP assignment Gallery.
Virginia Lu thanks for suggestion. I definitely will be playing more with backgrounds.
Teri, the ink blending needs a bit of work and so does the card layout. Maybe you can try working on this course again in your spare time. I am happy to help you privately if you need constructive criticism. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org whenever you have something ready for me. Thank you for the video!
