AECP | Polychromatic Cards

Hi all, I am super excited that I am learning so much from the Altenew Educator Program. The most recent course I have completed watching and partaking in is the Polychromatic course hosted by the very talented Nina-Marie Trapini.

Nina runs a thorough program playing with colours! This course will help you build confidence with colours or colour combos. In this class, you will learn how to use multi-colours comfortably! Use tips and tricks from this class to make your projects shine with various colours!  

For my card set today I delved into my card stock stash and chose colours that were close to my Altenew Mini Ink pads I had in my collection.

I used the lighter shades of my inks and repeat stamped the floral image from Kind Matters stampset on a full 5 x 7 ” cardstock panel. Once I have done all my stamping I added some depth to the floral images with copic colours. I used copic colours R85, Y02, YG41, RV42 & B00. All these colours not only matched the ink colours but the cardstock with a slight darker shade to add depth. I cut the full panels down either in half portrait, landscape and diagonals and adhered these down on white side folding card base.

For the sentiments I die cut with white cardstock and pressed the ink pads to turn these into coloured sentiments. I added some sheen to the sentiments by spraying an array of Nuvo sprays that I had in my stash. I had some pre-cut die cut hearts in white and craft cardstock.

I also added some extra sparkle with pre-embossed panels. This is a handy tip that I do for convenience to have glitter cardstock on hand which I do reach for on a regular basis.

For the overall presentation of these cards I place all elements together changing up the designs which all have the panels, glitter cardstock, die cut sentiments and heart die cuts.

To watch my process of what I had learnt from this fabulous class I have created a tutorial up on my youtube channel.
