Polychromatic – AECP

Hey guys, it’s been a while, but it’s been a busy few months. I got covid for a bit and was also taking a class for work which tied up some of my extra time on the weekends.

Anyway, here are my cards for my next class, Polychromatic. This class is about using colours comfortably. One lesson in this class is about using similar colours on your card, and is where my inspiration came from – “multiple colors within (or close to) the same color family.”


  • Altenew Wallpaper Art Stamp & Die Bundle
  • Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Morning Glory Layering Die Set
  • Versamark Ink
  • White Embossing Powder
  • ZIG Real Brush Markers
  • Altenew Tea Party Crisp Dye Ink Set
  • Mega Hydrangea Stencil
  • Crepe Paper – Red, Pink, and White

The Cards

I LOVE the Wallpaper stamp set. I used 3 different Zig Markers for the flowers on Bristol Smooth paper. I put some colour down around the white-heat embossed leaves and added water to move the colour around.

The next card is something I’ve been thinking about doing for a while and that’s using my crepe paper with my layered – dies.

I used red, pink and white 90 gram crepe paper. The 90 gram crepe is a lighter crepe paper so it’s not too heavy for the card. I used double sided adhesive sheets on the back of the crepe paper to adhere the layers, because using liquid glue would wet the crepe paper and deform the crepe paper.

Speaking of the grain on the paper, I tried my best to keep the grain in the ‘up’ direction, but it’s not possible in all areas of the cuts.

And for the background, I used the Hydrangea stencil and Reds from Tea Party Crisp Dye Ink Set in a gradient pattern.

I stretched some of the areas of the flowers to give the card additional dimension. I’m happy with how it turned out and think I could get even better results with other colors as well.

That’s it for this class. See you at the toughest class for me yet, Beautiful Details.
