Altenew Academy - Class Eight, Seasonal Scene Building

Class Eight for Altenew Academy, "Seasonal Scene Building", sees us learning tips and techniques on how to create unique scenes for projects.

I have used the lessons taught within this class for a few different class submissions, but for this particular class submission I have chosen to focus on this card featuring the Handpicked Bouquet stamp set, incorporating the techniques in lesson 6.

I love the concept of movement within cards so was keen to include this in my make. Rather than following the lesson exactly, I mixed things up a little. For the foreground of my scene I selected the layered stamp set Handpicked Bouquet. I trimmed around the image on one side to add a different look to the piece. Behind the image a built a shaker section containing white sequins and this has been mounted to the card blank with added coloured strips to tie in with the colours used.

I white heat embossed the sentiment "deepest sympathy" on to black card and set this on foam pads to again add another layer to my scene. The design of the card has been weighted to the bottom left of the card, with an emphasis of white space to the opposite corner.

Stamp Sets: Handpicked Bouquet, Leaf Medallion

Inks: Secret Garden Supplies: 7x5" White Card Blank, Smooth White Card, Royal Blue Card, Black Card, Embossing Ink, White Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Die Cutting Machine, Circle Dies, Acetate, Foam Pads, Double Sided Tape
