Beyond Basic Backgrounds Project for Altenew Educator Program

altenew educator certification program - distress ink - water resist - inlaid die cutting - card making - Nicki hearts cardsToday, I will feature a card that uses a couple of elements from this class. First, I started by blending distress ink onto watercolor card stock. I used masking post-it notes to cover the half that I wasn’t blending. To make sure the line was center and perfectly straight, I used the We R Memory Keepers laser grid.

This is a new technique for me and creates a beautiful subtle effect with the distress inks. Each area was stamped 2-3 times to get desired effect then blotted with a paper towel.

After the panel was completely dry, I cut out the sentiment to do an inlaid die cut card. The two tone sentiment was awesome but I thought it would look amazing with some sparkle, so I added stickles to the top half. All that was left was to pop it up, add all elements to a card base and add some jewels.
