Hello and welcome to the Altenew Educators Anything But A Card Blog Hop and Linky Party. Today, our Certified Educators have created amazing projects to share with you. The hop is filled with so much inspiration for you so do not forget to hop along with us. Plus, there are tons of prizes too!
Before we move forward, let me tell you a bit about the Altenew Educator Certification Program (AECP). Through AECP, you not only become a representative of Altenew but also a part of a loving and supportive community of talented crafters. And not only this, if you have not been crafting for a while or feel like you have been stuck in a rut, this is a perfect program to brush up on your skills! This program is perfect if you want to enhance your paper crafting skills, master new crafting techniques, and are open to sharing your passion for crafting with others.ARVE Error: need id and provider
Below is a gorgeous collage of a few of the projects you will be seeing along the hop! Don't they look incredible?
Project Inspiration: Bookmark
I used the Tall Tale Bookmark Die and the Leaf Clusters Stamp Set for my project. First, I die-cut the 9 x 12 Watercolor Cardstock using the Tall Tale Bookmark Die. Next, I applied water onto the bookmark making sure I covered the left side a tad higher up than the right. After this, I dropped in Fuchsia Crisp Dye Ink diluted with water. To add interest, I also added splatters of the same while the panel was still wet. Then I added color from Hydrangea Crisp Dye Ink.
I kept building my base layer till I was happy with the look. Once I was done, I used the heat gun to dry the panel. Next, stamp the images from the Leaf Clusters Stamp Set onto the bookmark in Fuchsia Crisp Dye Ink. Then use a fine paintbrush to apply water to the leaves and drop in Magenta and Ultraviolet Crisp Dye Ink pigment. I also used a bit of Cosmic Berry Crisp Dye Ink in some places.
I didn't add the Ultraviolet Crisp Dye Ink to all the leaves. Most of the leaves only had the Magenta Crisp Dye Ink. After the leaves were colored, I used a very diluted pigment of Andromeda Crisp Dye Ink and added freehand sprigs. The intention behind this was to make the foliage appear fuller.
Then I dried the panel and added more prominent splatters. I also added very fine black paint splatters. To finish, I tied a couple of matching ribbons.
