Today’s card is my assignment, at the end of the Level 1 of Altenew’s Educator Certification program, to see if I can implement techniques I learnt from 3 of the courses out of the ten I took onto one card. This card will also determine if I can go on to the Level 2 of this program. I could be stressing out but decided to, literally, relax and go with the flow! I also made a video to show you my technique to create the luminosity and glow on my card and you can find it at the end of this post.
After learning so many techniques, (I watched around 50 video classes!) and being mega inspired by all the incredible creators who taught these lessons, I was now brimming with ideas in my head! In the end, I decided to use the ideas of creating a background & a frame to create my aquarium from the “Seasonal Scene Building”, using my markers and embossing powders from the “Let It Shine” course, and the emboss resist from “Easy ink blending technique” to create the jellyfishes, from Altenew’s “Painted Jellyfish”, which is a layered stamp set with 2 sizes of jellyfish.
This card is relatively easy to make but the results are incredible! You have to first heat emboss one of the layers of the jellyfish, with the “Glow in the Dark” Wow Embossing Powder, blend in the distress inks onto your card, then colour the larger jellyfish stamp with the pink Zig Fluo brush pen, spritz it with water, stamp to lift the ink from the card and colour in with the same Zig brush in the areas where the ink was lifted. I then used a paint brush to lift more ink from the paper to to create air bubbles. The sentiment, which comes from the same stamp set, was stamped in Versafine Onyx black ink.
I love this pic as the glow of the powders in the bottle are incredible! There are more pics of the incredible jellyfish glow on my card in the video below.
Well I hope you liked my card and that you’ll try the techniques I showed. If you do, please let me know and I’ll come over and visit. Thanks for stopping by and your comments leave a warm glow in me too!
