Progressive Card Making-Altenew
Sept 4, 2019
The Progressive Card Making Class at Altenew Academy was lots of fun. The class was taught by Justine Hovey. Out of the six lessons, I chose to use masking on my final card. I decided it would be fun to pick a stamp set I have not used, make a simple card, then make a total of four cards. As a challenge to myself, I try to make each card a little more advanced as I progress.
For this first card, I used light blue card stock. I colored in the bird image with markers and added die cut images and a greeting.
For the next card, I made a watercolor wash background.
Here is a photo of a watercolored bird that is fussy cut out. For those that don’t know, fussy cut means hand cut.
The second card has a watercolored background and a watercolored bird. This time I made my die cuts look a little more 3d. Such a fun looking card!
The above photos show me using my stamp positioner. The photo on the right shows a paper masked that I used while stamping.
For the third card, I used a watercolored background and a watercolored bird. This time I stamped the images and used a paper mask. I love how some of the images really look like they are in front of the other branches, For the final touch I added black dots.
For the last card, I did all the same thing as the third card except I used a different water colored background . I also shaded around the leaves. I love the light in this card.
Thanks for stopping by my blog. Till next time, happy stamping.
