It’s been a while since I’ve shared a project for the Altenew Educator Certification Program. Life got a little busy as we see buying our new house and moving, but I’m excited to be settling back in and I’m ready to keep moving forward!
For today’s project, I’m sharing my card for the Polychromatic course over at Altenew Academy. This course is taught by Nina-Marie Trapani and is all about including color in your projects. There were so many great ideas and tips – she’s got such a great eye for card making!
I decided to use the ‘white with pops of color’ theme she shared in the course. I’ve been loving a more clean and simple approach lately, even though it puts me outside of my comfort zone. I chose the Gradient Stripe Stamp set for the background of my card.
Using my MISTI, I stamped sections of the large background stamp with a variety of colors. I slightly overlapped where I applied the ink each time so I’d get a gradient rainbow effect. I love how this turned out!
Next, I cut a strip of black card stock and treated it with an anti-static powder tool. I used my Mini MISTI to stamp out an awesome sentiment from Crafty Life and hear embossed it white Embossing Powder. This the perfect sentiment to send to a crafty friend or anyone who knows about your passion for cardmaking!
I popped my black panel up on foam for a bit of dimension and interest. I also added a few clear sequins for a bit of sparkle. I was trying to keep the card pretty clean and simple, even with all those bright colors in the background. That finished off my card and I love the way it turned out. I am looking forward to taking more courses and sharing my projects with you!
