CASE yourself: Inspiration from previous Altenew Academy class (IG hop)

The Altenew Educator Certification Programmer crafters have gottent together for another fun Instagram hop. This time we were challenged to make a card inspired by one of the Altenew Acadmey classes were have previously taken as part of our certification process. This is perfect opportunity to show you you can CASE yourself for inspiration and I chose the All About Layering 2 class as I really loved the cards I created. With these cards, I showed 3 techniques with layering stamps and I have focused on one of those techniques today. 

You can see the original cards here.

CASE yourself for inspiration: faux watercolouring

For this card, create masks of the two flowers form the Book Engravings stamp set using the Altenew Masking paper. Make sure you fussy cut these out with no outline. Next stamp the outline of the largest floral in one corner of a piece of watercolour cardstock. I used Catherine Pooler Cummerbund for the outline.  

Cover this with the mask you created and then stamp the smaller floral off to one side. Position the second layer of the largest floral over the image having removed your masks. Ink this up in Fiesta Blue and before stamping down, spritz this with water to bead up the ink. 

As you stamp, this will spread a little creating a ‘faux’ watercolour painted look. Repeat this process for the last layer of the floral using Suede shoes ink. The water helps create a soft painted look. Cover the large floral with your mask and repeat for the smaller floral.

To create the leaves, repeat the same process but instead use a combination of greens. Make sure your masks are covering the florals to ensure these are protected.

The outline images were stamped in Garden Party ink. The leaves only have one stamp layer along with the outline. To add a little varition, ink up with Lime Rickey ink and then add a little Grass Skirt ink towards to bottom off the leaves.

CASE yourself

As you spritz the leaves with water before stamping, the two greens will blend giving variation. To finish the card off, add a heat embossed sentiment from the Hello & Hugs stamp set and embellish with sequins.
