You Are Awesome

by yana.smakula

Hello, friends! This is Yana with you today sharing a very simple, almost an everyday kind of card. To be honest, the simplest, cleanest cards are always the hardest to design. Even though the final project looks like a piece of cake, it usually takes hours to actually stamp one!

Yana Smakula | Altenew - You Are Awesome Card

Nonetheless, I always enjoy a little challenge and try to come with simple ideas like this whenever I have the time.

The card I'm sharing today is a one layer project. First I stamped triangles using several light colors of Altenew ink starting with the largest triangle in Warm Sunshine. I also added another one right next to the first one and stamped that in Frayed Leaf, the lightest green. I kept stamping additional solid triangles and also added a few striped ones to this design. The balance the colors I also introduced a third color – Frosty Pink.

After my background stamping was done, and by the way I used Sohcatoa stamp set (I've shared another card and video using this stamp set here) I stamped two little figures in black and added You Are Awesome sentiment.
