Colourandsparkle decided to take a novel approach and use alcohol inks on vellum in place of stenciling. Then, carefully applied gold heat embossing to some ethereal flowers offering a creative way to use up scraps and add an additional layer of visual intrigue as they are poised elegantly against a background of randomly embossed white card strips.

Anet, a beginner at water-coloring, found this class to be very informative and full of helpful advice. This course is perfect for those looking for a place to start with watercolors. The Delicate Garden Stamp & Die Set and Watercolor 36 Pan Set are used in this card to demonstrate a variety of techniques that produce gorgeously soft yet vivid pigmentation.

Easy Ink Blending

Liz used the color scheme from the September Inspiration Challenge as a study for this class. Starting with backgrounds instead of her usual focal point-first strategy turned out to be a fun and novel card design exercise.

Layering is the focus of Donna's first course, which fits her love of Altenew's layering capabilities for stamps and stencils perfectly. She skillfully illustrates the breathtaking depth made possible by using several layers of color with the Build-A-Flower: Stargazer set.

My favorite card is the “Colourandsparkle”. Sorry but I REALLY hate the white border around most of the others.
