AECP Educator Program | Beautiful Details

Learn different tips and techniques from Marika Rahtu on adding various details to your project to take it to the next level!

If you are looking for ways to use various mediums on your projects and maybe felt your projects may need a bit more of something? Then this class is perfect for you!

I have learned so much from Marika that I now look at my mediums differently. Even my ordinary black sharpies and pigments pen which I write with, I used for added dotted detail on today’s card.

Ill be honest with you here I had an enormous amount of gelli prints that created with Altenew stencils so I picked this Mega Bloom stencil from my stash that I thought would work great for this card. I placed the stencil back over the gelli print image and traced with my sharpie permanent ultra fine tip pen. I didn’t trace around each and every petal but I chose to trace one side only of each petals. I then added some dotted detail around the other side of the petals.

I also added thin black strips of black card stock on the corners of the card front.

Check out my youtube tutorial up on my channel.

I just couldn’t help myself and made another card this time adding dotted detail on the outer part of the watercoloured image. The below large image is from the ‘Courageous You’ which I heat embossed with WOW! Ebony powder on watercolour cardstock. I coloured the embossed image in with Karin Brush markers and an aqua pentel brush.

In addition to the beautiful details class I also got the idea to trim on an angle the card front as an added detail from the “With a Twist” clasess from Therese Calvird. Theresa’s class takes your favourite techniques and give a twist! She teaches you how to get more out of your current products and think of different way to jazz up your paper crafting projects.

So for this card I added the painted dots washi tape in the inner part of the cardbase so it peaks through the angled cut.
I also have another card for that class on my youtube coming shortly.

Take your favorite techniques and give a twist! Let’s get more out of your current products and think of different way to jazz up your paper crafting projects. Get new ideas and bring new purpose to your stamps, dies, and inks!
