I have been practicing my layered stamping with the Vintage Roses stamp set as part of my class at Altenew Academy (All About Layering 1) and I am getting more confident with lining up the layering stamps and getting the angles better. I have also used some techniques from the All About Layering 4 class to add some texture and interest to the card.
To create the base for the flowers I have cut a piece of white cardstock to create a base card 4″ x 6″. I then cut a piece of lilac card slightly smaller on each end and adhered it to the card front. I then cut a piece of white cardstock and die cut the ends using the beautiful Creative Edges Lace die and adhere this to the front. I cut a piece of white cardstock and I have used textured paste tinted with Minty Mint ink with the Deco Wallpaper stencil and then heat embossed with Bridal Tinsel embossing powder for some sparkle. I matted this with some lilac card and then added this to complete the front of the card.
I have stamped the rose images from the Antique Roses set on Neenah Solar white card with Soft Lilac, Lavender Fields, Deep Iris and Midnight Violet inks and the leaf images from the Antique Roses set with Minty Mint, Sweet Leaf and Green Fields inks. I found this colour combination to work well and was very pretty. I then die cut with the coordinating dies and layered the flowers over the embossed card.
To complete the card I have stamped the sentiment from in Jet Black ink and after trimming the sentiment I have added to the card as shown with foam tape.
I hope you like this card and I really encourage you to look at the Altenew classes. There is always something new to learn!
