Sending you Sunshine - Stampendous

Hi Crafty peeps,

Am participating in Kathyrac's the daily marker coloring challenge. And so Coloring has started in full swing.

Turned up yesterday's coloring into a card today, adding the background, darkening the shadows some more.

Over to my card!

  • Stamped the Stampendous Sweet Sunflower onto a watercolor paper using Antique Linen DI for Noline coloring.
  • Colored using Zig clean color brush pens and for darkening the shadows used Prisma colored pencils.
  • The bg made using Zig clean color brush pens.
  • Generously splashed with watered down White paint.
  • Sentiment is stamped from Mudra Simply florals using Mudra Mai Jet black ink.
  • Added this watercolored panel to a corrugated panel.
  • Tied a twine and added beads to their ends for those touch of accents.
  • The panel then matted on the A2 sized top fold black card base.
Hope you like it!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Crafting!!

Together Forever : Chipboard CAS Card

Hi Bloggy pals,

It's CAS card again this time. Though I ardently love making textures and layers, CAS amazes me equally with all those white spaces, which speaks tons of emotions. I admire a lot of CAS crafters, who aesthetically work on focal elements and brings in Minimalistic versions.

Yes, It's yet another card using Brusho, my most favorite watercolors. Love to create visual textures with it.

  • Took a watercolor panel and played with Brusho crystal - Orange for an abstract look at one corner of the card.
  • Then took MUDRA chipzeb and sponged with MUDRA Mai jet black ink.
  • Stamped an appealing sentiment from MUDRA together forever stamp set with 2 hearts on the lower portion of the card.
  • Added the chipboard using liquid adhesive.
  • Mounted this panel to A2 sized black cardbase to finish off this card.
Hope you like it!
