AECP Level 2 Lesson In The Mood For Color

On to the next lesson and the focus for this lesson “In The Mood For Color” is using color to express a mood.  I created a card to express happy thoughts.  I used a stamp set from Altenew Garden Silhouette. The bright colors would create the mood and I used Tombow markers in  bright pink, yellow and light blue for coloring the flowers and bright green for the stems.  The leafy branch was inked with Altenew light green ink cube.

I used a simple clean layout that started with a quarter sheet of white card stock.  I colored the first stamp using the bright yellow marker and  green for the stem.  I stamped the yellow flower in each corner.  Next was the pink flower in the middle of each side and filled in  the other spaces with another flower and this one was light blue.  I filled in the other spaces with the stamped mini-leaf branch.

Next,  I stamped Happy Thoughts sentiment in black Versaclair ink and clear embossing powder.  The next step was to add light green ink using a foam blending pad and the small dot stencil.  The last step was to die cut the piece using a stitched edge die cut from My Favorite Things.  I used double sided tape to attach finished piece to white card stock.  Great easy card to customize for other occasions.
