Perfectly Perfect!

Hey everyone,

I have an one layer card to share with you. I am participating in the Altenew Academy One Layer Wonder class by Kelly Latevola. I am a big big fan of Kelly’s work and her videos are my learning guides. So I didn’t want to miss her class. Anyway, here is my card for day #1.

There are a lot of masking on this card. But adding shadows give the rather flat card lots of dimension. I have used Altenew’s new release Perfectly Perfect and Ditsy Print stamp sets on this card.

I started with stamping, masking and stamping out the floral cluster. I coloured the flower cluster using Altenew’s Artist Markers, stamped the sentiment to mark out the panel on the card front. Then I added shading to the marked panel makes the panel pop out of the background. Then I masked the panel and the floral cluster to stamped the Ditsy Print outline image only in light grey ink.

I trimmed the entire panel to 4’x 5.25′ in size and glued it flush to the white card base. I still consider it as one layer as there is no raised element on the card.

The sentiment did not stand out as expected. So I used white gel pen to highlight it. This technique I learned from Kelly too. My hand were wobbly going around the sentiment. No perfect by atleast I am able to read it.

Looking at the photo of the card, I realise that I should have continued the shadow of the sentiment panel to the leaves and flowers spilling outside the panel as well. That would have made them pop as well. Maybe I will go back, add shadow to them and edit the post later to show you how that looks.

All supplies used to make this card are listed below.


 Have a wonderful weekend!
