Shapes on Cards

I passed the ACEP Level II. Yippee! Now for Level III. I took Jaycee Gaspar’s Elements of Floral Composition Online Cardmaking Class. One of my favorites. This class is packed with great ideas and ways of looking at composition. For my card I tried to use the triangle shape that he taught. There is so much good stuff in this class I’m going to have to go through it again.

I started out by using the Altenew Blossom & Bloom Die. Stamped with Obsidian Ink. Cut out a few sets and set out to color.

I used several mediums including some of Altenew’s new mixed media ink. I used a water brush and colored the leaves and flower with the media inks. After they dried I went in with my copics and added a little more color. Then used a gold gel pen and added dots to the outside center.

I adhered the flowers so it represented a triangle. Jaycee also talked about adding dimension by having some flower adhered directly on the paper and some using foam to raise it up a bit.

I added a sentiment in gold paper. Added some gold jewels, and some gold washi tape to add a little bit of lines to the background. I adhered to a kraft card base and that completes this card.

Hope you enjoy!
