Hello! I just finished the Altenew Academy Class \”Beautiful Details\”. I have to say our instructor, Marika Rahtu, is quite the artist and her cards are amazing! Marika taught us that adding details can elevate our cards.
- I love ink blending so I ink blended a complimentary background. I reversed the colors from the floral images so I started blending from the bottom right in yellow (top flower) then added 5 other colors so that I finished with purple to get the gradient that I wanted. I laid down a lot of ink and think this gives a bold and cohesive look to the card.
- I masked the left side (1\”) of the card to give contrast to the bold colors.
- I used foam adhesive to give dimension to the focal point.
- I added some shimmer pen to the flowers for a bit of subtle shine.
