AECP All About Layering #2 with FMS #429

Hi friends and welcome to my 2nd post as a participant of the Altenew Education Certification Program:
The challenge was to create a card based on what I learn in Altenew Academy's All About Layering 2, another free class offered by Altenew. Just click on the link and you can buy it ($0.00) and watch it right away.
I wanted to use my Vintage Flowers stamp and die set that I have had for a while. When I saw the Freshly Made Sketches picture it was like the light bulb went off! 
If you look closely in the picture above you can see an outline around a group of stamps. These are the stamps that go together to create layers. I have taught 2-3-4 step stamping in the past and it makes some students anxious. If you break it down into groups, it is reasonable and easy doable. Look at the leaf image on the left. There are 3 stamps. Stamp the solid one first in a light ink. Then the next partial stamp in a bit darker ink and finally the the 3rd image with the darkest ink. What a fun quick way to ink an image!

Nicole showed many different stamps set and how to stamp their layers. In this 2nd class, she taught that stamping the outline image first works well for larger stamps. It is helpful to know that we can stamp from the bottom image up or the top image down perfectly.
I used Altenew's Chevron Stencil with Wendy Vecchi's Mark Art Station to ink blend a design on the right third of a basic white card stock. I used Ocean Waves ink and's foam blending tool, very gently, for the stencils are a bit delicate.
I used the following inks for the flowers: Sea Glass, Ocean Waves, Dusk and Desert Night and Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades, and Evergreen for the leaves.
The sentiment from the Geometric Flowers stamp set has such a clean graphic font. I stamped it with Dusk ink.
A slim piece of silver card stock was glued down to help separate the right from left side. The top and bottom flowers were glued flat, the center flower is popped up with foam dots. Lastly, I used a few silver embellishments from Pretty Pink Posh's Celebration Confetti Mix.
I hope you've enjoyed this card and would consider giving layering stamping a try if you haven't in the past. It produces beautiful images!
