Всем привет! У Альтеню сегодня блог-хоп посвященный Celebrating Parents Card Drive
Card Drive это благотворительный сбор открыток. Открытки собранные в честь этого хопа, отправятся одиноким пожилым людям живущим в домах престарелых или хосписах. Несложно понять как им бывает одиноко в День Отца или День Матери, а подаренная открытка поможет хоть немного их осчастливить.
Альтеню будут разыгрывать призы среди участников кард драйва, а так же за комментарии в самом блог-хопе.



To begin, I first distressed the white cardstock panel using Altenew Lagoon ink, then splattered with water, and when everything dried up, I heat embossed over the black ink using sparkling embossing powder. Then I cut out the joystick-shaped windows using coordinatig die, and replaced the piece of white paper cut earlier, using glue on the back side of the panel to keep the inlaid piece in place.
Then I colored the buttons and added glossy accent as a final touch.




 Для первой открытки я тонировала бумагу чернилами Altenew Lagoon, побрызгала водой, и когда все высохло сделала эмбоссинг прозрачной сверкающей пудрой поверх черных чернил. Затем вырубила окошечки в форме джойстика ножом для вырубки, и вложила внутрь вырубку из белой бумаги. Слегка раскрасила кнопки и покрыла глосси. 



Вообще делать мужские открытки оказалось довольно сложно. Это мой первый опыт. Тут особо не разгуляешься как с цветочками, но и сильно сдержанные открытки мне делать не хотелось. Поэтому я выбрала мятные, бирюзовые и фиолетовые оттенки, они в этом плане довольно универсальны, и выглядят не скучно.


For the second card, I placed the stamps on the stamping tool, and stamped all the images on white paper, and the same on the mint cardstock. Then I colored the images using shimmer sprays and added a litlle bit Wink of Stella on top. Then I glued a mint cardstock panel over the images, and added a small banner.



Для второй открытки, я расположила штампы на инструменте для штампинга, отшамповала все сначала на белой бумаге, а затем то же самое на мятном кардстоке. Затем раскрасила все блестящими спреями Lindy's и чтобы совсем все бестело покрыла Wink of Stella.  Изображения на мятном кардстоке я вырубила координирующими ножами, и приклеила эту панель поверх раскрашеных картинок. И в конце добавила маленький баннер с надписью.




The third card is my favorite. I stamped the flowers on paper with light inks, and lightly colored them using Altenew markers. After that, I added details with Faber-Castell pencils. To finish my card I stamped the sentiment in clear embossing ink and gold heat embossed.



Третья открытка моя любимая, с цветами. Я отштамповала цветы на бумаге сверху и снизу светлыми чернилами, и слегка раскрасила их маркерами Altenew. После этого добавила реалистичности карандашами Polychromos. И в конце сделала надпись любимой золотой пудрой для эмбоссинга. 




Our goal is to send cards for the elderly that lives in nursing homes or shelters to let them know they’re not forgotten. Please encourage people to check out the Celebrating Parents Card Drive and join this great cause by sending in cards.

    54. I agree with you: the last one is my favorite, too. I am a sucker for floral images, and this one is just beautiful. It's too bad the males in my life aren't into florals! I am totally impressed that you have only been making cards a short time! I started in Dec, 2015 and my skill sets are nowhere close. Were you always artistic? I wasn't, but I have discovered that there are some things I CAN do, and that the joy is more about the creating process than the finished product. (Oh how I wish my school art teachers had taught that one instead of encouraging the really talented kids and ignoring the rest of us! ) It's all ok, and I am having fun now. Thanks for the inspiration. I am going to go play soon.
