AECP Seasonal Scene Building
Hey everyone! Today I am here showcasing what I created for the Seasonal Scene Building class in the Altenew Educator Certification Program. One of my favorite scenes are the mountains, which makes sense since I live in the mountains! I also love a wintery snowy scene, so that is what I wanted to capture in this scene. I felt that the Wanderlust stamp set was perfect for this card!
First, I decided that I wanted to do some ink blending, so I pulled out my Distress inks and tore some 80lb card stock to create a ripped edge. Using some Mint tape, I secured the 3.75"x5" card panel cut by Tim Holtz's Deckled Trimmer to my glass mat, then taped down two pieces of torn card stock onto the card panel, one towards the top and one towards the bottom. Using a ink blending tool, I first added the purple ink and then I added the blue ink on the top and sides of the space. I then came back in with the purple to make sure that the inks were blended well. I then took off the ripped cardstock to display the wintery sky. I then added some white ink splatter to the image for a snowy look. I wanted to heat emboss the trees, so I stamped three rows of trees in Versamark and embossed them with Ebony embossing powder from Wow! Embossing Powders. I then stamped the mountain image onto a separate piece of card stock in gray ink, and then fussy cut the mountain out. I then added some Snow Grit Paste on the peaks of the mountains for snow on the mountains. I then popped the mountains onto the panel with foam tape. I then stamped the image with Versamark onto a piece of black card stock and embossed the sentiment with white embossing power from Wow!. I then cut out the seniment with the Deckled trimmer and popped it up with foam tape onto the card panel. Then, using the Deckled trimmer, I cut a mat for the card panel with some purple card stock and then glued it onto a white 110lb card base. For the final touch, I added some gray pearl embellishments.
I love this wintery scene so much! See you all soon with my next class!
Happy Crafting Y'all!!
