To My Fabulous Friend!

Today I have a project for Altenew’s Certification Program. I took Therese’s With a Twist class. And here I have a project for the class.

Hello and welcome. I am Gayatri. There was so many ideas in my head for this class but I chose to mix modern with vintage idea to make my project. Here it is.

AECP level 2 With a Twist class card #1

I stamped and watercoloured the flowers from Ornate Foliage stamp set on Bristol smooth cardstock. Then using the coordinating dies I die cut them out.

For the background, I used Kind Words stamp set to stamp the stars in Silver Lake ink. Then I hand drew the triangles and used a circle die for the circle using a copic fine liner.

I adhered the flower die cuts to make a cluster. The adhered the cluster on the centre of the background using glue on the centre of the cluster. The edges of the cluster therefore lifts up to add dimension. I used white pen to add details to the flowers.

The sentiment is from Ornate Foliage stamp set which I stamped using Charcoal Suit ink, trimmed and adhered on the centre of the flower cluster using foam adhesives. The whole panel is adhered to white card base using foam adhesive.
