Irresistible Inking Techniques - Altenew Academy

Irresistible Inking Techniques was an interesting class. 
I've done many of the tips shared, but I was surprised at how long ago I put it to practical use. 

So I grabbed some cardstock and got crafty!

I used the ink block technique from class for today's project.
I started with Sea Glass, which is soft and gorgeous!  I also added some splatters in Desert Night before stamping my butterflies and sentiment both from the  Bamboo Rose set. I watercolor washed the bold yellow tones from the Pocket of Sunshine ink cube set, using Fresh Lemon and Honey Drizzle.
I mounted my card front onto a foam base to secure it firmly and it adds dimension as well.
Lastly, I added a touch of Gold Wink of Stella, gave some details to the butterflies by drawing on it with a Gel pen in white and mounted it on a blue cardbase from Hero Arts. 

On a personal note: Today is day 4 without social media, I'm not gonna lie it been super hard not to go see what all my crafty friends and family have been up too, but I've got 6 more days until I complete my goal of 10 days.  I miss you all, and can't wait until March 1st.

I've also been working on my final, for my Business Law class... another challenge!

Anywho... I hope you've enjoyed my card and if you want to learn more about this class check out Altenew Academy and all the classes they have to offer!

Until next time
