AECP Level 1 assignment.

I have now completed the first 10 courses on the AECP Level 1 so Virginia has set me an interesting and challenging assignment...I need to use three techniques learnt and make it a masculine card or a card for a teenager.   I've been thinking and thinking what to do....  And finally a idea came to me...

My three techniques come from Easy Ink Blending.... my softly blended ink through the stencil (this is very subtle in the background), For the Guys.... using geometric shapes and Let It Shine.....using some gold embossing.

I used Sea Shores blue inks for my stamping and ink blending.  The geometric stamps are from Sohcahtoa set and the sentiment is from Birthday Bash and all the embossing was with Ranger Gold powder.  I added a few black spots from the Birthday Bash set to add some extra texture.

I have really enjoyed the courses so far... onward to the next 10 classes in Level 2.  Thanks Altenew for this awesome program and letting me be involved.

I am impressed with your design, Dawn! This is an unusual style and design of your usual, however, it is smashing! I love the placement of the triangles and the highlights of the splatter and gold really makes this a stand-out! Thanks so much for entering your beautiful work in Altenew AECP assignment Gallery. Beautiful colors and design. Well done!
