Hey Y'all!!

Happy Saturday and hope all is well!! Here is my project for my Altenew Educator Program Level 3: Clean, Simple and Colorful Techniques taught by THE Laura Bassen!! My focus on this card was Smooshing and Emboss Resist.

Here is my card.....CHECK IT!!!!!

Here are the deets on how I created this fun card!!

1. Create card from white cardstock.
2. Stamp and heat emboss design onto Mixed Media panel. 
3. Add ink onto image panel using the ink smooshing technique.
4. Die cut squares, add washi and staples and adhere together.
5. Stamp and heat emboss camera image onto a piece of white cardstock , trim and adhere to black square panel.

6. Adhere black square panel onto rainbow panel.

7. Create #smile sentiment with Dymo Label Maker and adhere to black square panel. 
8. Adhere whole panel onto card front and add sequin.

These are the Altenew products that I used on my card:

Tenia, reading the directions and then how you interpreted those directions really demonstrates/shows/proves/illustrates your incredible talent. What went through my head and what you created were very different things. I like to think that had I sad with the directions for a bit of time I may have produced something other than what appeared in my head at first, but I am in awe. Thank you for sharing your talents, you imagination with us. xoxo, Mary

I love how you created that bright and cheerful background - then topped it with black and white. And so many little touches like the sequin on the camera and the #SMILE label. It is wonderfully eye-catching and definitely made me smile!! As always...thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches!
