Altenew - Class Card 1

Today's "Class Card"

I'm taking a card class through Altenew.

 For our class card we had to add pencils to coloured images.  I took this altenew stamp set, Beautiful day, and stamped the leaves and flower.  I coloured it in a bit and then used pencils to add details.  To add some shimmer and to darken the colours, I used clear embossing powder to both the leaves and flowers.  It is hard to see from the picture, but it is pretty glossy.  I outlined both leaves and the flower with memento black marker to have the edges stand out better.

I used MFT grid background stamp and added some purple grid to my 120 lb cardstock.   I added piece of patterned paper to the side of the card to add more interest.  Then I adhered the leaves flat and added the flower with pop dots.

I used this wonderful sentiment which is from a Kaiser Craft stamp set.  I lastly added the few sequins to add a little more shimmer and to finish up the card.

Thanks for stopping by!
