Altenew Academy - Level 2, Class Two, In The Mood For Color
For my class submission I have chosen this card using Delicate Primrose stamp set and the guide from Lesson 6 using the colour Orange as my focal to give a sense of happiness and health.
I really wanted to create impact with my card design and have the colour orange taking centre stage. I started by stamping out the floral images on to my card panel, using masks to overlap the flowers and leaves. I used the Goldfish Tails inks, to add tonal colours of orange and Green Valley inks in contrast to make the orange pop.
To the centre of the flowers I added a little orange glitter for a bit of sparkle. I trimmed the panel around the top of the flowers, leaving a small white boarder as a defining edge. I mounted this on foam pads to a mat layer of bright orange card for further contrast.
For my sentiment I white heat embossed the word "sending" directly to the orange mat layer, then used a die cut "love" in white card, again mounted on foam to give height and interest.
To finish, these layers were stuck directly to a 5 1/2" by 7" top folding card blank.
