Smile More Yellow Altenew Class Card


 I'm taking the new Altenew class, In The Mood For Color.  The teacher is Stephanie Klauck.  Each day she goes over a new color and the mood it creates.  It's been really fun because it's not always something I think about.  For some reason I thought this class started tomorrow, so I'm running a bit behind.  Today's color is yellow & we are focusing on making cards with energy, optimism & cheer. I wanted to make a fast, fun card using one of my new stamp sets so I ended up using my Smile More stamp set.  It has some uplifting sayings that were perfect for today's class homework.  The flowers in the set are cone flowers so they also fit into the homework because I could make them yellow.  Altenew has a whole bunch of different classes available at altenewacademy.com .


I used my Zig Clean Color Real brush markers to color my images.  I only used four colors to do the entire card.  Everything was stamped onto Strathmore Bristol paper.  It's the best paper for using these markers.  I can't remember where I first saw this tip, but it's a great one.  I have a video of the coloring process below.  As always, the supplies are listed below.  Just click on the links if you'd like to know where I purchased them.  Thanks for stopping by!
