Beautiful Details

  • Post category:AECP / English

Today’s card is inspired by AECP class Beautiful Details.

I can honestly say, from all of the AECP classes I’ve taken, this was the most inspiring one. Listening to Marika Rahtu talk about her process gave me courage to try and improve my coloring. I’ve colored the images from Darling Rose Stamp Set with Altenew’s Cosmic Garden Artist Alcohol Markers Set A, and honestly it was one of my best coloring ever! I’m happy with the result. I’ve created a brick background with a stencil, and finished it with some enamel dots.

Some tips for this card:
– The most important thing I’ve learned from this class is that you should go over and add layers of color. It was an interesting realization.
– If you have a matching ink pads to your colors, stenciled background can be so much fun to match with the image!
– If one of the images was partly stamped or colored wonky, you can always use it and hide the mistakes… can you spot which leaf was only half-stamped?

Thank you for reading, and see you next card!
