Happy Friday! I am poping here quickly to share a very fun project while attending Creativation 2019. If you are in Pheonix, AZ this weekend, make sure to come on by our booth at 461 and say hi! Would love to see you and give you a big hug!
Today we are celebrating a very special occasion. One of the things I do for Altenew as their Operations Director is being a part of Altenew Education Certification Program. This program was launched in late 2017 to help fellow crafters improve their cardmaking/paper crafting skill set and provide ways for them to be more involved with and spreading the love of Altenew.
I work closely with the amazing AECP Coordinator Virginia Lu and have been witnessing fellow crafters becoming wonderful certified educators. They hold workshops, demos, and share the love of Altenew products with their community. It is truly a blessing to have worked with them. If you have not checked out the program, I highly recommend you do so! Find more about AECP program HERE.
Today we are celebrating all of the currently certified educators by having a very special blog hop! I am just honored to even be a part of the hop. So let’s get right to it.
I am going to share a project created by using Artist Mark Refills and have a video tutorial below for you to check out. Hope you enjoy!
Many of us love to get messy with alcohol inks – but did you know you can also use your Artist Marker Refills to get the effect you can get from any other alcohol inks? This is a great way to get more use out of your refills!
I chose 4 colors to use on this card, Blush, Rouge, Crimson, and Velvet. These are refills for the Red Sunset marker set with beautiful peach to bright red color shades. So I added a bunch of drops to a peice of yupo paper to create a very fun background.
You can add layers on top of layers to create an effect you like. Don’t you just love the blended colors and the textures they created? You can speed up the drying process with a heat tool, or air dry it for a couple of hours.
For the sentiment, I used Gold Foil paper and cut out “Hello” using the Caps Bold Alphabet Die Set. After popping them out using some foam squares, I added the “beautiful” stamped greeting from the Meadow Flower Stamp Set.
I kept the rest of the card very simple since the background itself is the start of the card today. I hope you enjoyed the project! Thank you for stopping by, and dont forget to enter the giveaways (info listed below)!
